INCLEMENT WEATHER SAFETY TIPS
FOR TRANSNET RIDERS

 

•  Don’t Rush! Plan ahead and allow extra time to arrive at pick-up points.
 

•  Dress appropriately and wear slip-resistant footwear when possible. 
 

•  Be on the lookout for icy, snow-covered, or uneven pavement. 
 

•  In areas covered with snow & ice or blocked by a snow bank, wait on the sidewalk, at a cleared driveway, or nearby corner.

   DO NOT wait in the street. 
 

•  Be aware of the gap between the curb and vehicle. 
 

•  Use handrails when entering and exiting the vehicle. TransNet vehicles feature non-slip floors but extra caution is

    always encouraged.  

 
•  Stand far away from the curb until the vehicle has come to a full stop.
