How to Board the Bus at Designated Bus Stops

Signal the driver by a wave of your hand as the bus is approaching. The driver will only stop at intersections. Stop locations in Downtown Bangor are designated by Community Connector bus stop signs.

Boarding the Bus

Please following the guidelines when boarding, and please have your pass, ticket, or transfer ready to give to the driver. When paying in cash, please have EXACT change ready to deposit in the canister. Remember, the driver does not carry change! For your safety, limit your boarding items to what you can carry on at one time.

Exiting the Bus

One block before your stop, pull the cord over the window. The driver will then stop the bus as close to the next block as can be safely done.

Wheelchair Lifts / ADA

All Community Connector buses are wheelchair accessible. For information about additional ADA transit services, call the Community Connector at 992-4670.

Bike 'N Bus
