Unlawful Bus Conduct Law, Washington State Law RCW 9.91.025
It is against the law, while on the bus or at a designated bus stop, to intentionally disturb others by engaging in loud or unruly behavior; carry flammable liquids, explosives or other harmful materials; spit or litter. Unlawful bus conduct is a misdemeanor.
Island Transit vehicles are equipped with bike racks which are available on a first come, first service basis. As the bus approaches, have your bike ready to go. Remove water bottles and any loose items which might fall off. For safety reasons, the driver cannot get off the bus to help you, but he or she can give you instructions. Always load and unload your bicycle from the curbside. To use the bike rack, the rider simply lowers the rack with one hand. This durable rack weighs less than 30 pounds and is just as easy to raise as it is to lower. In fact, tests show that most people can load and unload in less than 30 seconds. After lowering the rack, the cyclist lifts the bicycle into position in the rack's wheel wells. All bicycles fit on the rack, even those with fenders and children's bicycles. And, all bicycles load exactly the same way. In the down position, the bicycle support arm is held in place on the rack by a magnet. The arm is easily swung up and into position after the bicycle has been placed in the rack. Cyclists load and unload from the curbside, even if their bicycle is the one nearest the bus, making for safe, efficient operation. After lifting the support arm up and over the front tire, a spring pulls the arm back, holding any bicycle securely. Even better, the rack touches nothing but the rubber tires, preventing any possible damage. There is nothing to lose or get caught, no straps, cords or bungees. Once loaded, the bicycle is held firmly in place.
Island Transit does not operate on Sundays or the following holidays or days of observance: New Year's Day; Memorial Day; Independence Day; Labor Day; Thanksgiving Day; Christmas Day.
Schedule Changes Due to Weather
During adverse weather conditions (ie., snow, ice, load limit restrictions due to thaw conditions, etc.), Island Transit may be required to detour buses. We will do our best to inform riders during these unexpected conditions. Schedules may also be impacted during these periods, so please be patient and allow extra time to get to your destination.
