Bus Stops

Bus Stop Only Policy
Metro Bus has a Bus Stop Only policy to maximize bus schedule reliability, requiring riders to board and exit fixed route buses at designated signed bus stops. Nearly 700 signed bus stops are located along Metro Bus routes. When deboarding, your driver will let you off at the nearest signed bus stop after you pull the yellow stop request cord.

Metro Bus bus stops list the route numbers in circles. Each sign has a unique ID located on the lower left corner.

Identify Your Route at the Bus Stop

Bus stop signs identify the routes served by that stop with route number stickers. Bus schedules and the system route map show bus stop locations along each route.  Most routes have signed bus stops every 2-3 blocks in urban neighborhoods and 4-6 blocks along less dense corridors. Each bus stop has a unique ID located on the lower left corner. This ID can be used when calling Metro Bus for schedule information.


Bus Shelters

Step out of the bus shelter when your bus approaches so the driver can easily see you.
