Can I bring my stroller or grocery cart on the bus?

Yes, strollers and two-wheeled grocery carts are welcome on JTS buses.  Please remember that children may not remain in strollers while the bus is in motion.  For customer safety and to easily move through the bus aisle, stroller and shopping carts, etc. must be kept out of the bus aisles and be stored behind a barrier or stationary bus seat.  If a stroller or cart cannot fit behind a seat or barrier without being folded, any cargo must be removed and placed on the parcel rack so the device may be folded as required to fit behind a stationary barrier or bus seat.  Click here to review the Stroller and Shopping Cart Policy.
