Priority and Courtesy Seating

FET provides Priority and Courtesy seating, located close to the front of the bus, for riders with disabilities or mobility challenges. Customers are expected to respect and obey the purpose of the designated seating areas.

Priority Seating

Priority seating is for the use of passengers with a disability. Riders sitting in one of the designated seats must vacate the seat for a passenger with a disability, with the following exceptions:

  • A person with a disability occupying a Priority seat is not required to move for another customer with a disability. Use of these seats is on a first come, first served basis.
  • A person is not required or expected to leave a transit vehicle in order to make room for a customer with a disability.

Courtesy Seating

Courtesy seating is intended to provide additional seating for people who will benefit from having a seat near the front of the vehicle such as seniors, expectant mothers, adults travelling with infants or small children, etc.

NOTE: Drivers/operators will not enforce this requirement or intervene in any dispute related to Priority or Courtesy Seating. We ask, however, that you respect this designated seating area and show consideration for those whose need is greater than your own.
