Tips for Bus Riders

WHERE CAN I GET INFO ON METRO TRANSIT BUS ROUTES & SCHEDULES?

Go to the Metro Transit Bus website at cityofmadison.com/metro   There you will find up-to-date information about routes, schedules, transfer locations, park-&-ride locations, the rank-n-roll system for bikes, changes in routes & schedules, etc.  The website includes an interactive feature called “How To Ride – Trip Planner,” which allows you to input the location from which you wish to depart & the location to which you want travel.  The system will then inform you of locations & times for your trip(s).  Students may also pick-up copies of the Metro System Map & the Ride Guide at various locations on and off-campus.

I’VE NEVER TAKEN A BUS & FEAR GETTING ON THE WRONG BUS OR NOT GETTING-OFF THE BUS AT THE RIGHT STOP.  WHO CAN HELP ME LEARN TO USE THE METRO TRANSIT BUS SYSTEM?

Metro Transit has many online “tips to ride,” as well as an online “How To Ride – Trip Planner” at cityofmadison.com/metro  Students are strongly encouraged to use this.  The “trip planner” is available 24/7 & informs you of departure & arrival locations & times, as well as transfer information.  Students are also encouraged to speak to other students who are experienced bus-riders.  They are usually happy to share “tips” to better utilize the transportation system.
