公车时间表:

Bus Timetables:

    在美国,除了纽约这样的一些大城市,一般的中小城市中,公共汽车也都会有运行时间表,而且汽车到站基本上也是准时的。通常情况下,白天等上515分钟,就会有公车经过。不过,晚上或周末的车次会比平时要少很多。

In the small and medium-sized cities in the United States, generally bus timetables can be seen at every bus stop. Buses usually arrive on time. Under normal circumstances, it takes about 5 to 15 minutes to catch a bus. However, in the evening and on the weekends, there are far fewer buses operating.
车上设施:
老人和残疾人士乘车

Accessible services facilities on the bus:
Seats for the seniors and the disabled passengers

    司机座位后面,车厢前部的两排座位,法律规定是预留给老人和残疾人专用的,一般情况下,那些座位上即使没有老人或者残疾人,健康人士也是不会去坐的。

    坐轮椅的残疾人车公交车也是很方便的。一般每辆公交车后门的踏板都有升降装置,或者整车都可以下降,司机见到行动不便的人就可以按动按钮,让轮椅轻松上车。后门正对着得地方是空不设座位的,那里设有安全带可以将轮椅固定好。 

    美国的公共汽车都是“无人售票车”,没有专职售票员,司机就兼售票员。

Two seats at the front of the bus are designated as priority seats for the seniors and the disabled, according to law. Often, even if these seats are empty, able-bodied people will not take them. Most buses are equipped with an access ramp and the kneeling function at rear door for disabled passengers. The bus driver can lower the bus at the push of a button and extend the ramp for passengers using wheelchairs and other mobility devices. The wheelchair securement area is located at the rear of the bus, and is equipped with safety belt to secure wheelchairs.
U.S. buses do not sell tickets, and the driver also serves as the operator.

 

自行车乘公共汽车

Bike on buses

 

    在美国许多城市的公共汽车前面都有一个架子,那是专门为自行车准备的,骑自行车的人可以带自行车乘公共汽车,是一项很让人惬意的服务。每辆汽车可以载两部自行车,当然是按照“先来后到”为原则,不过,也很少有等不上车的情况。

In many cities in the United States, buses are equipped with front-mounted bicycle racks so cyclists can take their bikes with them. It is a convenient service for both work commutes and recreational trips.  Bicycle racks can only carry two bikes at a time and are available on a first come, first serve basis. If the bike rack is full, just wait for the next bus. It will not wait too long for the next one to come.
