About: Bus Hailing Kit • A clear plastic pouch with three slots for route numbers to assist customers with identifying their desired route. • There are also reflective strips at the top to indicate if additional help is needed.
How To Use It... • A customer waiting at the bus stop will hold the bus hailing kit to “hail” the route displayed in the pouch. • This is ideal when a customer is waiting at a stop where many routes stop.
The Route Numbers • Each Bus Hailing Kit has a place for three numbers which would allow a customer to hail any route. • They are large print to help customers and drivers see them easily
Braille • Braille on the top right corner allows Calgary Transit customers who aren’t able to see the number use the kit.

Watch for the Bus Hailing Kit • If you are waiting at a bus stop and see someone with the bus hailing kit you can help them by letting them know when their bus has arrived. • They will appreciate the assistance you provide.
