Getting off safely
Before leaving the tram or bus, look back to see if you have left behind any valuables.
Stand clear of doors when they are closing.
Cross the road at a pedestrian crossing, wait for the bus to leave before you cross. If there is not a crossing nearby, cross the road where you have a clear view of all traffic.
Give crossing the road 100% of your attention, texting or listening to music will distract you
If you need to cross a railway track, use a crossing!
Keep your ticket, you might need the information if you lose something.
