GENERAL INFORMATION

Maritime Metro Transit is a public service provided by the cities of Manitowoc and Two Rivers. All of riders have a right to a safe and pleasant ride on a clean vehicle. While on board, please be considerate of your fellow riders and follow these rules:

  • Plan Your Trip Using a Map - Find the nearest bus stop along the route closest to your location or destination. Look at the route times and determine when you should be outside waiting at the bus stop.
  • Waiting for the Bus - Be sure you’re by the bus stop waiting for the bus at the suggested time. We recommend being outside a couple minutes before the scheduled arrival time. A few seconds late could cause you to miss the bus.
  • All Hail the Bus - When the bus approaches your stop, hail or flag to the driver that you wish to use the bus. Since people stand on corners for many reasons, it’s important to communicate with the driver your intentions.
  • All Aboard - Step on board the bus, pay your fare and quickly take the first available seat. Please make sure you’re paying with the exact amount as drivers do not make change. Then, sit back and enjoy the ride. In the event a passenger must stand, please stand toward the rear of the bus and hold onto an available pole or loop.

Bus Rules

When riding the bus, please:

  • Give your seat to any person who is less able to stand than you are.
  • Listen to and obey the driver’s instructions.
  • Read informational handouts and notices posted in the buses.
  • Take a seat if one is available and remain seated while the bus is moving.
  • Wear proper clothing:
    • Shirts and shoes are required
    • Skates of any kind are not allowed

When getting off of the bus, please:
