Travelling on buses usually involves interaction with the driver and other commuters. It is every passenger's responsibility to behave in a manner that ensures the safety and comfort of all other riders and passengers when travelling on a bus.
Passenger safety is our top priority. We expect passengers, staff and road users to adhere to safe practices when on and around Transport Canberra buses.
All buses are fitted with CCTV security cameras, which are used in accordance with ACT Government guidelines, relevant regulations and legislation.
Please familiarise yourself with the below safety messages:
- Passengers are expected to signal the bus and undertake their journey in a safe manner.
- Wait for the bus to lower before boarding.
- In the evenings, the blue light on buses is for visibility purposes for other road users.
- Please do not talk directly to the driver while the bus is moving.
- Vacate marked spaces and seating for passengers with wheelchairs and prams, or those with a disability, seniors and those less mobile.
- Ensure brakes on wheelchairs and prams are activated.
- Watch your step when entering and exiting the bus.
- Remain seated until the bus comes to a complete stop.
- Take a seat if one is available, otherwise move to the back of the bus and hold onto handrails and straps.
- When seated on the bus, keep both feet planted on the floor in case the bus stops suddenly.
- When moving around the bus always have one hand on the handrails and straps provided.
- While on board the bus, please stow away bulky items including backpacks, oversized baggage, strollers and walking frames.
