How to ride a Pullman Transit bus:

1) Look for your neighborhood bus stop. There are stops in every neighborhood, downtown and on WSU campus. The information on the bus stop sign will let you know when your bus should arrive and what direction it will be traveling. We encourage all riders to be at their bus stop 5 minutes before the scheduled arrival. Riders can also scan the QR code on the bus stop sign to locate their bus in real time. 

2) Find your route and Bus Stop. You can go to pullmantransit.com and click on the Routes & Schedules for individual maps and time schedules and to view bus stop locations. You can also click on the "Wheres my Bus" icon to view buses in real time as well as find out what route comes to your area.

3) Make Sure We Don't Pass You By: Every now and then a rider gets left behind because the driver did not see them. Here are some tips to make sure you get noticed. 

a) Stand visibly at the stop.

b) Face the bus and nod your head "yes" or wave to the driver.

c) Step forward when the bus is about 1/2 block away.

d) If you are in a shelter, walk to the stop as the bus approaches.

4) Bikes on Buses: All Pullman Transit buses are equipped with bike racks with space for two bikes on the front of the buses. Riders are responsible for loading and unloading their bikes. If you are unsure of how to use the bike rack please ask your driver for assistance. Pullman Tranist is not responsible for damage or loss of an improperly loaded bike or personal property left on bikes. Here are some helpful hints for loading your bike.

a) Bike racks may be used on a first-come, first-served basis. Use of the bike rack is free to all riders. 

b) Easy to use instructions are located on the bike rack. 

c) Remove all loose items before placing your bike on the rack.

d) Load your bike from the CURB side of the bus.

e) When possible, choose a seat where you can observe your bike. 

f) Don't forget your bike after you get off the bus. 

g) Upon exiting, please let your driver know that you will be removing your bike. 

5) Respect the Rights of other Riders: We encourage everyone to ride the bus but everyone must respect the rights of other customers. The following is a list of rules and guidelines for riding the bus.
