Passenger Conduct
The following are examples of inappropriate or unacceptable behavior on MET buses:
  • Consumption of food or drink
  • Smoking
  • Profanity
  • Vandalism
  • Tampering with equipment
  • Fighting
  • Soliciting
  • Harassment of another passenger
  • Sharing a pass
  • Resting feet on a seat
  • Swinging from stanchions
  • Lighting matches or lighters
  • Loud radios
  • Weapons possession

Passengers creating a disturbance or exhibiting any of the above behavior will be told to cease immediately. If this behavior persists, the passenger may be told to vacate the bus. If a passenger is instructed to deboard and refuses a police officer may be dispatched.

If students are seen sharing a pass, the operator will confiscate the pass and instruct the students to have their parents call a MET supervisor.

If students are creating a disturbance at or near a school and refuse to cease in their behavior, the operator may call a supervisor and be given permission to take these students back to the school and have them removed from the bus.
