Town of Yarmouth Transit runs using a flag stop system – where you can choose to board and depart the bus at designated stops, or by creating your own flag stop.
Anywhere with the exception of Starr's Road and a portion of Main Street and Vancouver Street (see map below) on the designated route, you can “wave” down the bus. When you want to flag the bus:
- find a safe location along the route
- stand on the side of the road that the bus is traveling
- wave at the bus
When you want to depart, ask the transit driver to find a “safe place” to stop close to your destination (a safe place is one where visibility is good and where the bus can easily stop).
Why a Flag Stop System?
It's really important to us that our service accommodates our users. Our contactless fare technology will provide the Town with the location that customers are “flagging” the bus. This information will be used to help the Town to select new bus stop locations and make route changes in the future.
