- Stand back from the curb as the bus arrives, and never run to or from the bus.
- Don't push, shove, or yell loudly while on the bus.
- Stay in your seat during the entire ride.
- Always obey the bus driver.
- Wait for the driver's signal before crossing the street, and always cross at least 10 feet in front of the bus.
