In places where there are no fixed bus stops along the road, bus services may operate as ‘hail and ride’.
If a bus service operates as hail and ride it means you can signal to the bus driver that you wish to board the bus at any point along the road and the driver will stop where it is safe to do so.
If you want to get off the bus, simply ring the bell close to where you want to alight and the driver will pull over as soon as it is safe to.
Hail and ride usually operates where there are no fixed bus stops along the road, often in rural areas or along residential estates, and can be along the entire length of its route or a small section. If a bus service operates hail and ride, it will be identified as such in the timetable produced by the bus operator.
Remember - your driver has a responsibility to ensure the safety of passengers and other road users. Please respect his or her judgment when requesting the bus to stop.
