Rider's Guide for Fixed Routes

Flag Stops:

Freedom Transit operates as a “flag stop” system. This means that you can catch the bus along the route by raising your arm and/or waving to the driver, to signal to the driver that you’d like to board the bus.

If you want to “flag” a Freedom Transit bus, please be sure that:

  1. You are standing on the correct bus route.
  2. That you are standing on the correct side of the street for the direction in which you would like to travel.
  3. That you are standing in an area where the bus driver can see you.
  4. That you are waiting in an area where it is safe for the bus driver to pull over and for you to board the bus.

Bus stop signs are located at various locations along our bus routes in the City of Washington. Bus stop signs are also posted along Pike Street in Houston Borough and Canonsburg Borough. If you are waiting for a bus at a bus stop sign it is also helpful if you “flag” the bus by raising your arm and/or waving to the driver to signal to the driver that you’d like to board the bus.

Passenger Rules:

Transfers:

Transfers are available free of charge to change from one Freedom Transit route to another. If you need a transfer, please ask the driver for a transfer as you exit. Transfers are only good for the date the transfer is issued, for up to four hours from the time it is issued.

Passengers can use a transfer to change from one Freedom Transit route to another, but a passenger may not use a transfer to pay for a return trip.
