How do I catch the bus?

Buses only stop at locations marked with a bench, shelter and / or sign. Use our Trip Planner or call 209-521-1274 or 1-800-262-1516 before riding to find out where you can catch the bus in your area.     

When at a marked stop, stand near the sign so the driver knows that you want to ride. The driver may not stop for you if it doesn't look like you want to ride. Back away from the curb as the bus approaches to avoid the mirror on the side of the bus.
