Bus Driver Tip: Be Seen at Night

Some of you may recognize Luis, one of our Omnitrans Coach Operators who frequently drives Routes 14 and 3.

With Daylight Savings Time taking effect this Sunday, Luis is concerned about passengers who might not be easily seen at night. “With the days getting shorter and it getting dark earlier, visibility can be tough. I want to remind passengers to stand by the bus stop and be sure to signal the driver.”

He also offers this tip: If you have a small flashlight on your keychain, turn it on, point it at the ground and move it back and forth to catch attention. But please be safe. Be sure not to point it at the bus where it could blind your driver.

Thanks, Luis!

  1. I use the Flashlight App on my phone when the bus is approaching at night. It has different levels that will flash the light, which I shine down on the curb in front of me. It has worked for me thus far. Also a few weeks ago, I got a new pair of tennis shoes and the bus driver said she saw them before the flashlight on my phone because they were so white :).
