Can I get on an “Out of Service” bus while I am standing at a bus stop or stay on the bus after it’s out of service?

It might be possible for a passenger to board or stay on an “Out of Service” bus, but passengers cannot plan or depend on this option. In some cases, if an “Out of Service” bus operator sees someone at a stop and their schedule allows, he/she may stop the bus and allow a passenger to board the bus before their regular service (the passenger would still pay their regular fare).


End of Service Day

At the end of a service day, after the last scheduled stop, a passenger may ask the operator if they can stay on the bus to disembark at a bus stop along an operator’s planned route back to the garage at Saint John Street.
