Boarding the Bus
Be at the bus stop a few minutes before the bus is scheduled to arrive. As the bus approaches, check the electronic sign on the front or side of the bus to verify the route number and destination. Allow passengers to get off the bus before you board.

SamTrans buses have a kneeling feature that lowers the front end making the first step easier to reach and also are equipped with lifts or ramps for those who have difficulty climbing steps or who use a mobility device, such as a wheelchair.
