Passenger Safety on Vehicles

Safety of our passengers is our number one concern, and these rules must be followed by everyone:

1. Do not lean or extend the body or articles from the vehicle.

2. No smoking, eating or drinking on the van.

3. Do not consume or possess an open container of any alcoholic beverage.

4. Do not possess, use or sell any controlled substance.

5. Do not carry or possess any dangerous weapons.

6. Do not possess or transport any flammable liquid or other hazardous material. This includes, but is not limited to, gasoline, kerosene, propane, industrial chemicals, any other flammable chemical or any toxic substance.

7. Proper clothing consisting of a top, bottom and shoes must be worn at all times. The top or shirt must conceal the front side of the torso; the bottom or pants must conceal from the waist down to approximately 18 inches. If the shoes are of lace style, these laces must be tied.

8. When de-boarding the van, please wait until the van has pulled away before crossing the street.

9. Do not engage in disruptive, disturbing behavior including: distracting the driver, disrespecting fellow passengers, loud conversation, profanity or operating any electronic device with sound without earphones.

10. All passengers must use safety restraint equipment and/or seat belts at all times if such equipment is available on the vehicle. Anyone refusing to use safety restraint equipment will be denied transportation.

11.Passengers who are either less than five (5) years of age or who weigh less than forty (40) pounds are required to use an appropriately sized child safety seat, and any such seat is required to be properly secured with available restraint equipment at all times. These child safety seats are the sole responsibility of the guardian passenger of the child.

12. It is the passenger’s responsibility which is using an oxygen cylinder to make sure each oxygen cylinder is secured to prevent movement and leakage. Each cylinder should be loaded and secured in an upright position. “Secured” means that the cylinder is not free to move when the vehicle is in motion.

13. It is the passenger’s responsibility which is using an oxygen cylinder to make sure oxygen cylinders or other medical support equipment should never be stored or secured in the aisle. Make sure that the seating of the passenger requiring oxygen does not restrict access to exits or use of the aisle.

14. Since the release of oxygen from a cylinder could accelerate a fire, it is the passenger’s responsibility which is using the oxygen cylinder to make sure each cylinder should be secured away from sources of heat or potential sparks. Securing personal oxygen tanks are the passenger’s responsibility.

15. Aisles of the van must be clear at all times.

16. Do not vandalize the vehicle.
