Tips on avoiding an Ottawa Bus Accident and how to stay safe.

Ottawa Bus Accident Safety

Over the past few weeks , we have seen troubling reports over our city’s transit system and Ottawa bus accident.  Last week, 43 OC Transpo buses were pulled for weekend repairs, a double decker bus caught fire with 70 passengers on board and a bus driver was fired over reckless driving through a rail crossing. 

How to avoid an Ottawa bus accident

While you, as a passenger, have little control over the safety of the bus or the actions of the driver, you should always be diligent and cautious when riding public transit. 

  • Never run after or next to a moving bus.
  • Stay well back of the curb when waiting for the bus.
  • Wait until the bus comes to a full stop before approaching.
  • Watch your step, especially at night or in wet weather.
  • When using bike racks, always stay in view of the bus operator.
  • Take a seat if possible and always use the handrails/handholds.
  • Step away from the bus after exiting.
  • If you drop something when exiting, leave it on the ground until the bus drives away.
