If you’re riding Lextran for the first time, you should research the route you would like to take.

-To ensure that you are at the correct bus stop, make sure the number located on the bottom left corner of the sign at your stop aligns with the bus that you need to take. – Each Lextran stop will have a numbered sign just like the one above.

-Once you are at the right location at the right time, you should have your student ID in hand to ensure you are ready to board the bus.

-Once your bus arrives, check the front signboard to read the number and main destination for that route. (Some stops serves multiple routes. Be sure you are on the correct numbered bus.)

-Students should enter the bus through the front door, show the driver your valid student ID and proceed to any available seat on the bus.

-Keep in mind that the front seats are reserved for elderly and are made  handicapped accessible for riders.

-On the bus, the rules are posted.

-Once your stop is approaching, it is a courtesy to the  driver to notify him that you want to get off at the next stop by pulling the yellow rope hanging along the window once the bus leaves the stop before yours. Pulling the rope rings a bell.

-Once the bus comes to a complete stop at your desired location, you should watch your step if exiting from the back and proceed out of the back doors.
