Once a bus has left a stop, it will not stop to let passengers on or off. When two buses stop at a bus stop at the same time, the rear bus will not pull forward and stop again.
When a bus is parked at its terminus, you may not be able to board immediately. This is because the driver is on break.
Buses stopped at their terminus may show a sign that reads "Ej i trafik" (not in service). This is because the driver has not had time to switch from the old sign to a sign showing the new destination.
Keep in mind
We at Sörmlandstrafiken want everyone to enjoy riding the bus. It’s also important for it to be safe to ride with us. These rules will make riding the bus pleasant for all:
Please give up your seat if you see someone who needs it more than you.
Do not place baggage where it will be in the way or hazardous to other passengers.
It is not permitted to smoke, drink alcohol, rollerblade or skateboard on the bus. You may not place your feet on the seat or other parts of the bus interior than the floor.
People who are intoxicated or disruptive may be asked to get off the bus or not be permitted on board.
You are permitted to eat on the bus if you do not make a mess or leave litter behind.
You will be more visible if you use reflectors when it is dark. This enables the driver to see you waiting at the bus stop.
Animals on the bus
Dogs, cats and other small pets ride free on the bus. They must be leashed or be in a cage or bag. You are responsible for ensuring that your pet does not bother other riders on the bus.
If you are travelling with an animal, sit in the rear of the bus.
Prams, push-chairs, walkers and wheelchairs
Prams and walkers are allowed on the bus if space is available. They must not block the centre aisle.
A bus cannot take very many prams or walkers.
It is up to the driver to decide how many fit.
If you are travelling with a pram, secure it with the straps provided for the purpose on the bus.
When you want to get off the bus
Press the red button labelled "STOPP" when you want to get off. This lets the driver know you want to get off at the next stop.
On some buses there may be different coloured buttons with different symbols. The symbol might be a pram, a wheelchair, a person with a cane or an eye.
If you press one of these buttons, the driver will pay closer attention when you are getting off. It makes no difference which button you push if you want the bus to stop. When you press one of the buttons, check to see that the sign reading "STANNAR" (stop) is lit at the front of the bus. If it does not light up, press again.
You can always ask the driver for help if you are not sure where or when you should get off.
