In addition to operating five bus routes, a special curb-to-curb service is offered for those persons who have a disability and are unable to ride the bus. Call PUT at 610/326-5413 for information on how to become eligible and use this service.
Once you know your travel route, go to any designated PUT bus stop along that route. Arrive at least five minutes before the bus is scheduled to leave.
Each bus displays the name of the route above the windshield. Observe the destination sign carefully since more than one bus may stop at a particular bus stop. Make sure you are boarding the correct bus.
After the bus has come to a complete stop and the door is open, grasp the handrail and carefully climb the stairs. If you have any questions about the route or destination, ask the driver.
