Whenever possible, remain seated during the ride. When selecting a seat, please consider the accessibility of seating for seniors and persons with disabilities towards the front of the bus. If the bus is crowded, please move to the back if the bus. If you must stand, hold on to the handrails. Federal regulations prohibit the operation of any bus with passengers standing ahead of the yellow or white line.
Fixed Route buses come equipped with a two-unit bike rack. It is your responsibility to unfold the bike rack, load and secure your bicycle and return the bike rack to the stowed position. If the rack is full, you will need to wait for the next bus. When you leave the bus, please exit from the front doors and inform the operator that you will be unloading a bicycle. Never step in front of a bus to load/unload a bicycle without alerting the driver and making sure the bus is completely stopped. Folded bikes that can be carried, and placed on your lap are accepted at the driver's discretion.
VISTA is not responsible for any theft or damage while a bike is mounted on a rack or at any VISTA facility. Unclaimed bikes will be kept at VISTA Lost & Found and held for no more than 30 days. Please call 1 800-438-112 between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday through Friday if you leave your bike or other belongings behind
Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits the use of public funds in any manner that results in discrimination. The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) require all public transportation operators to comply with Title VI regulations. In April 2005, VCTC adopted its original Title VI Program, which ensures the level and quality of VISTA bus service is provided without regard to race, color, national origin, or income status. VCTC’s February 2009 Title VI Report was updated to be consistent with the guidelines set forth in FTA Circular 4702.1A (dated May 13, 2007).
