How to catch a bus

To catch a bus:

Once the driver has closed the doors, they may not be able to stop to pick up additional passengers.

If multiple buses are queued at a stop or station, proceed to the doors of your identified bus for boarding. Failure to do this may result in the bus departing without the driver realising that there are passengers waiting further down the platform.

Getting on the bus
