Travelling with Children

When travelling with a pram, hold on to the pram and make sure your child is strapped in securely. Apply the brake to prevent it from rolling.

Waiting for the bus

Get to the bus stop early, and get your myki ready. Stand back from the curb and wait for the bus to arrive. When you see your bus approaching, wave to the driver so it is clear you want this bus. Approach the curb once the bus has completely stopped and customers have finishing getting off the bus.

On the bus

Watch your step and hold the handrail as you board the bus. Keep both feet flat on the floor when standing.

Sit down as soon as you can. Safely store your bags to reduce trip hazards. Vacate the priority area is someone with special needs requires it. Assist or let the driver know if help is needed.

Be respectful to the bus driver and don't distract them while they are driving. They have an important job to drive the bus safely.

If the bus is crowded, move towards the rear.

Give the driver plenty of notice when approaching your stop by pressing the button early.

After the bus

Remove your headphones so you can be completely aware of your surroundings. Never cross the road until the bus has moved away and you can see clearly.
