Woohoo! You made it to your destination. Not so fast! You still need to pay attention when you’re getting off the bus, too. Watch the video below to learn how to exit the bus safely.
Our BC Transit bus drivers are definitely super-heroes, but they cannot read your mind or predict the future. The button tells them when there is a rider that wants to get off at the next stop. Remember to press the “STOP” button with enough time for the driver to pull over at the stop safely!
Find the things that are wrong in the scene below.
Answers: 1. The kid exiting the bus did not look both ways before she got off – now, the biker is going to hit her and they might both get hurt! 2. She’s not paying attention to the sounds around her either because she is listening to music on her headphones, so she can’t hear the bike bell either!
Feel free to give a wave and say “Thanks!” to your driver as you leave the bus!
