Is it your first time on the bus? Here’s how to ride!

Taking the bus is pretty simple. Just follow these three steps: Plan, Pay, and Ride. It all begins with a route planner. Or you can visit our How to Ride section for more information on how to use the bus and figuring out the best way to get to the places where you want to go this summer.

Plan Your Trip How to Ride

A quick note about peace of mind

When your kids ride an MMT bus, they are on one of the safest vehicles on the streets. Our buses are clean, the drivers are trained to keep things safe (including pointing out the five cameras on every bus!) and some of our routes operate every 15 minutes. We maintain excellent on-time performance and safety standards.

Teaching your kids about the bus

That’s right. Mountain Metro offers a free program for Kids and Teens on “How to Ride the Bus” for both schools and youth organizations. A professional from MMT will come to your location, at a time you select, to teach youth groups and teens how to ride the bus. Our presentations are lively and informative, and are making a difference.

What does it mean when two or more routes are "interlined"?

Interlining is a scheduling technique that allows the use of the same vehicle to service more than one route. It is used to minimize vehicle requirements and as a method to make transfers easier for customers. Since there are typically a fair amount of transfers between these routes, customers can remain on the same vehicle and not have to get off to board another.
