Yellowknife Transit Etiquette

Please refer to Public Transit By-law No. 4284, as amended.

  • Entering/Exiting the Bus
    • Passengers are asked to enter through the front doors and exit through the rear doors.
  • Fares
    • Please have your fare ready when you board the bus. When paying cash, please have exact change as bus drivers do not carry change.
    • Monthly passes and ticket sheets offer discounts for everyone, and can be purchased at various locations around the City.
  • Courtesy Seating
    • The seats at the front of the bus are reserved for people with disabilities or injuries, seniors and expectant mothers.
    • Anyone seated in this area should willingly give up their seat when a passenger requiring courtesy seating boards the bus.
  • Move to the Back
    • Once you have boarded the bus please move to the back. This will allow more room for people who are boarding.
  • Strollers
    • Strollers should be folded before boarding the bus.
  • Personal Belongings
    • Please ensure that all of your belongings are placed on your lap or at your feet. This will leave aisles clear for easier movement of passengers.
    • Backpacks should be taken off and carried to avoid hitting other passengers when moving through the bus.
  • Food & Drinks
    • Consumption of any food or drinks while on Yellowknife Transit is prohibited (as indicated by signage).
  • Trash on the Bus
    • All buses are equipped with garbage cans for your use. Please place any trash in these bins to help keep Yellowknife Transit vehicles clean.
  • Unsuitable Language
    • The use of profanity on Yellowknife Transit is unacceptable. Please remember you are sharing your ride with many other people – respect others by keeping your language clean.
  • Graffiti
    • Yellowknife Transit works hard to provide you with clean vehicles for your ride; thousands of dollars are spent each year to clean up graffiti.
    • Please keep Yellowknife Transit vehicles graffiti free.
  • Loud Noises
    • Personal listening devices are welcome on Yellowknife Transit, with headphones.
    • Please listen to them at a reasonable volume as the people seated around you may not enjoy the same music as you.
