    1. Go slow and step carefully, the floors may be slippery.

    2. Hang on while the bus or train is in motion.

    3. Walk, don’t rush for your train or bus.

    4. Wear shoes with good grip that are good for ice and snow.

    5. Dress warmly as you may be outside for longer than normal.

    6. Wear clothing that is visible with reflective accessories.

    7. Avoid touching your face and sanitize often.

    8. Be courteous and give your fellow passengers space.

    9. Watch for your bus. Drivers may not be able to pull into a bus stop, and instead will stop in an area that is safe and accessible nearby.

    10. Allow for extra commuting time. Transit may be busier than usual, and there may be longer waits for certain services.
