  1. Always obey the bus driver.
  2. Avoid any unnecessary conversation with the bus driver when he/she is concentrating on driving.
  3. Respect the driver and your fellow passengers.
  4. When entering the bus, go directly to your seat and remain seated.
  5. When you arrive at your bus stop, at school or home, wait until the bus comes to a complete stop before standing and walking to the exit.
  6. Share your seat with someone.
  7. Sit facing forward with your belongings on your lap. Keep the aisles clear!
  8. Do not open any windows without asking the permission from the bus driver first.
  9. If a window is open, you must not stick anything outside.
  10. Never tamper with an emergency exit unless specifically instructed to do so by the bus driver.
