Helping riders reach their destinations

When most riders board Metro Transit, they know when the bus has reached their stop. But not everyone.

Riders unfamiliar with a neighborhood, people who ride the bus infrequently, and blind and partially sighted riders rely on drivers to let them know when the bus has reached their stop or destination.

Metro bus at stop

In fact, the federal Americans with Disabilities Act requires that bus drivers call out stops so people with disabilities can orient themselves. Other people also benefit.
