We would like to eliminate the doubts you may have about using the BTS buses. Learning to use public transportation is easy and enjoyable!
In the center of a bus stop sign it will read, "The bus stops here at :37." This simply means during operational hours, 37 minutes after each hour (1:37, 2:37, etc.) the bus will pass by this stop. When the sign has two times designated, such as 07 and 37 it means service is every 30 minutes, 7 and 37 minutes after every hour.
Getting On and Off
As the bus approaches, observe the destination sign and please have your exact fare ready; drivers do not make change. Seat yourself safely and quickly towards the back allowing the front seats for senior citizens and people with disabilities. Relax and enjoy your ride! When you are near your stop, press the yellow strip (or pull cord) located along the windows to signal the driver. The strip will activate a chime, and the stop requested light will illuminate. Please do not stand until the driver has made a complete stop, then exit through the rear door. Click here for help loading your bike.
Things to remember:
• Please don’t eat on the bus. Drinks are okay in a travel mug or to go cup.
• You are welcome to listen to music with earbuds or headphones.
• Unless it’s a service animal, pets must be kept in a carrier.
