Defeat The Heat




Summertime is here again,
and so are triple-digit temperatures.


Alfredo, our assistant transit ambassador supervisor, gives a crash course on
how to use the RTC transit system smartly and safely.

These simple tips will help you keep cool:
Stay hydrated

Drink lots of water and use spill-proof containers on buses.



Minimize your wait time

Arrive at your stop no more than 10 mins before the schedule stop time.


Download rideRTC, use RideTracker or text “RideRTC” followed by a space and your stop ID number to 41411.

Wear sunscreen
