Can I bring a drink on the bus?

In an effort to keep our buses clean and comfortable, VIA asks passengers to refrain from eating food or drinking beverages while on the bus.

Where do I get back on the bus?

You may board the bus at the same point you exited. Park & Ride buses are labeled at the top by the front door and top front of the bus as to which location the bus is going. If you have any questions and would to like to make sure you’re on the correct bus, you may ask a nearby supervisor or the bus operator.
