Reading the Headsign

You have read the schedules, you know what time your bus is scheduled to depart and arrive, and you’re waiting patiently at a designated BCTA bus stop.  But how are you supposed to know which bus to board? Allow us to give you the following helpful hints:Look at the destination sign on the front of the bus, above the windshield, these signs list:

  • Route Number
  • Final Destination
  • Major Interim Destinations

In many cases, buses have signs along the side that list these same types of information.

Don’t hesitate to flag down the driver and ask questions if you are unsure of which bus to board!
