Winter Travel Guide

Winter travel can be challenging – but if you stay warm, bright, and properly prepared, you can strut with confidence.




Winter Travel Tips

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

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

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

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

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

  • Wear clothing that is visible with reflective accessories.

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

  • 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.

  • Be courteous and give your fellow passengers space.

  • Wear your mask, they’re mandatory.

  • Avoid touching your face and sanitize often.
