Purpose:

Assist customers with vision loss, difficulty reading and limited English in identifying the correct Calgary Transit Route.

 

About: Bus Hailing Kit

  • A clear plastic pouch with three slots for route numbers to assist customers with identifying their desired route.
  • There are also reflective strips at the top to indicate if additional help is needed.

 

How To Use It...

  • A customer waiting at the bus stop will hold the bus hailing kit to "hail" the route displayed in the pouch.
  • This is ideal when a customer is waiting at a stop where many routes stop.

 

The Route Numbers

  • Each Bus Hailing Kit has a place for three numbers which would allow a customer to hail any route.
  • They are large print to help customers and drivers see them easily

Braille

  • Braille on the top right corner allows Calgary Transit customers who aren’t able to see the number use the kit.

 

Three Reflective Indicators

 

Yellow = Lower the Bus

 

Orange = Deploy Ramp

 

White = No Special Needs

 

Watch for the Bus Hailing Kit
  • If you are waiting at a bus stop and see someone with the bus hailing kit you can help them by letting them know when their bus has arrived.
  • They will appreciate the assistance you provide.
