Public Transit: Late Night Courtesy Stops

At night, you can request a ’Courtesy Stop’ from an LTC bus driver. The bus driver will then stop as close to your destination as possible. 

If you are ever in an unsafe situation you can get onto a public bus and the driver can contact the police through their radio dispatch. When traveling, asking strangers for directions can indicate to that you are not familiar with your surroundings. If you need directions, start by asking a bus driver or store employee.
