Transit employees provide a wealth of specialized knowledge and on-the-job experience.  Likewise, transit passengers contribute to the security equation by providing extra eyes and ears capable of identifying possible life-threatening situations.  When transit employees and transit passengers pool these resources, the result is a highly effective first line of defense against a potential natural or man-made disaster.

Riders can be alert, informed and prepared by following these preparedness tips:

  • Be informed and have a transit plan of action.  Familiarize yourself with the locations of station entrances and exits and emergency telephones.
  • Be on the alert for suspicious packages or behavior.  If you see something, get away from the area and dial 911!
  • Be prepared. Create a plan for maintaining contact with family, friends and co-workers, and keep your emergency information with you at all times.

Our goal is to make the BlueXpress commute as pleasant as possible for all of our riders. You can help by following these few simple guidelines:

  • Rider numbers have been increasing, and many buses are standing room only. As a courtesy to your fellow passengers, please store all personal and carry on items in the storage areas provided, on the floor at your feet, or on your lap, and not on the seat next to you! 
  • Arrive 5 minutes early to board your bus. Our buses run on time, so don't be late!  Drivers cannot stop to pick up stragglers.
  • Cell phones are a distraction to the drivers and other riders. Please set your cell phones to vibrate or ring quietly, limit the length of your calls, and keep your voice low.
  • Beverages are permitted on the bus, but must be in a sturdy container with a secure lid.
  • That's all there is to it! Additional Ridership Guidelines are posted on the bus. Click here to download a copy.
