Dear Campus Community:

Safety is always TCAT’s number-one priority. One of the biggest challenges bus operators face on a daily basis are “blind spots” – structures inside the bus that obscure their vision outside the bus.

TCAT bus operators are trained to look around these blind spots, but we are asking for your help in creating a safer experience for both pedestrians and drivers.

Before you cross in front of a bus, try to make eye contact with the bus operator so that they know you are there. Be aware and cross safely, especially when there is heavy pedestrian and vehicular traffic and/or when the bus is preparing to make turns.

Thank you for being a great partner with TCAT to promote the safety and wellbeing of community members.
