Bus Riding Tips
Arrive at the bus stop at least 5 minutes before the scheduled time.
Although every effort is made to remain on time, delays may occur.
Wait for the bus at designated bus stop locations only.
Have the exact change, or bus pass ready when boarding the bus.
If you need to transfer to another bus to complete your ride, tell the driver you are transferring as soon as you board the bus. You may only transfer at Wal-Mart, White Sands Mall, Inn of the Mountain Gods, or the Chamber of Commerce in Ruidoso.
Be considerate to others. Seats in the front of the bus are designated for individuals with disabilities, and senior citizens.
Please remain seated until the bus comes to a complete stop.
Watch your step as you exit the bus.
For Your Safety and Comfort
NO SMOKING, EATING or DRINKING on the bus.
Do not talk to the driver while the bus is in motion.
The use of audio devices without earphones and other disruptive behavior is prohibited.
Baby carriages, strollers, or small shopping carts, which cannot be readily collapsed or secured so that they do not block aisles or resent an impediment to other passengers are prohibited on the bus.
Service animals are allowed on the bus but must be under the control of the passenger at all times. Small animals are allowed if they are in a secure small carrier that can be carried without danger or offense to other passengers.
Firearms and hazardous materials (e.g., batteries, gasoline) are prohibited on the bus.
Ztrans buses are equipped with bike racks. All racks hold two bikes. If the bike rack is full, drivers, depending upon passenger loads, will allow bikes inside the bus. There is no additional charge to use the bike rack.
Sportworks® and BykRack designed the Bike-Rack-for-Buses to make as low an impact as possible on transit operations. All loading and unloading of bicycles can be done by the bicycle rider. Sportworks® suggests that children’s bicycles be loaded by an accompanying adult, but the rack can be easily loaded by young children. These steps should be followed when using the rack.
Prepare your bike for loading. Remove water bottles, pumps and other loose items that could fall off while the bus is in motion.
Inform the bus driver that you will be loading your bike. You must load your bike from the curb or in front of the bus. Do not step into oncoming traffic to load your bike.
Squeeze handle up to release latch, then fold down the bike rack. You only need to use one hand to unlatch and pull the bike rack down, so you can hold your bike with your other hand. It is not necessary to lean your bike against the bus.
Lift your bike onto the bike rack, fitting wheels into labeled wheel slots. Each wheel slot is clearly labeled for the front wheel. (NOTE: The rack operates properly even if a bicycle is loaded in the wrong direction.) The purpose of the directional placement is to make the bike nearest the bus easier to unload.
Raise the Support Arm up and over the front tire so that the hook rests at the highest point on the front wheel. The Support Arm adds lateral support for the loaded bicycle. Many bikes will sit in the wheel well without the use of the Support Arm, but the rack must not be used without the use of the Support Arm.
Board the bus and enjoy the ride! Choose a seat near the front of the bus to keep an eye on your bike. DON’T FORGET you have a bike with you when you get off at your stop. New riders often do!
Inform the bus driver that you will be unloading your bike as you approach your stop. Unload your bike from in front of the bus or from the curb, not from the street side.
Raise the Support Arm off the tire. The Support Arm automatically folds down to a secure position.
Lift your bike out of the bike rack.
Squeeze the handle and fold up the Bike-Rack-for-Buses if there are no bikes on the rack and no one else is waiting to load a bike. The bike rack locks in place with a snap so you know that it is secure.
Step away from the bus with your bike. Always step to the curb, for your own safety and to allow the bus to proceed onward.
WHAT IS THE PARA-TRANSIT BUS?
Para-transit is a special transportation service offered by the Ztrans Public Transportation Service,

individuals with disabilities.
