Boarding a Westmoreland Transit bus
Westmoreland Transit operates on a flag stop system
in Westmoreland County. This means that you can board the bus at any safe stopping point along its route. You do not need to be at a bus stop sign.
Please use the following guidelines when stopping a bus:
- You need to be at a safe place for the bus to stop.
- You cannot flag stop the bus from the opposite side of the road.
- If the road has a double lane in one direction, you cannot board the bus if it is traveling in the left lane. (Buses will only travel in the left lane if they must make a turn).
There are two ways to flag stop a bus:
- Make a stop motion, i.e. hold up your hand to the driver as the bus approaches to indicate that you want to board the bus.
- Call the Transit Center to request a bus hailer. The bus hailer is a bright orange card that is exclusive to Westmoreland Transit and recognized and honored by all drivers. Simply hold up the card as the bus approaches and driver will be aware that you are a passenger. The bus hailer is especially useful and recommended in downtown Pittsburgh where several bus systems use the same bus stops.
Note: In downtown Pittsburgh, drivers will stop only at designated Port Authority bus stop signs.
Westmoreland Transit buses are boarded from the front door only.
Paying for your ride
On Westmoreland Transit buses, the fare is always paid as you board the bus.
At the top of the bus steps, you will see a farebox with slots for both bills and coins. Deposit your money or fare into this box as you board the bus.
You must have exact fare. For information on fare zones and the cost of your ride, please see Schedule, Fare, and Ticket Information.
If you are paying with a 10-Trip ticket, hand your ticket to the driver. He or she will punch your ticket and return it to you. For information on
10-Trip ticket purchase, please see Schedule, Fare, and Ticket Information.
If you are paying with a Monthly pass, simply show the pass
to the driver as you board. For information on Monthly
Pass purchase, please see Schedule, Fare, and Ticket Information.
If you must transfer to another bus to complete your trip, please inform the driver as you board. You will be given a transfer coupon that can be used for one zone of travel on another bus. For more information on transfers, please see Schedule, Fare, and Ticket Information.
Alighting from the bus
Above the window (or above your head in coach buses) from the inside of the bus you will see a pull cord or a button. Pull the cord or press the button as the driver nears your stop. The driver will then know that you would like to get off of the bus. After the bus comes to a complete stop, exit at the front of the bus. If you are transferring to another bus, make sure that you receive your transfer coupon from the driver.
