BUS CONDUCT

Being as cordial as possible will make the trip more enjoyable for everyone.  A positive outlook will help everyone else during the long walks and the extensive sightseeing on the trip.

 

In addition to the ordinary bus rules, keep the following in mind:  As you get off the bus discard the trash that you accumulate so the driver doesn’t have to constantly clean up after you.

 

Most importantly, if you bring a soda on board to drink, make sure that you drink the entire soda.  UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE is anyone to pour soda down the restroom sink or stool on the bus.  This will negate the chemicals that control the restroom odor.
