Night stop on route 5

Night Stop offers you the opportunity to get off the bus between two stops if there is a safe place to do it. The driver decides each time whether it will work or not.

 

Night Stop is subject to the following conditions:

 

  • only on route 5 in the City of Örebro
  • along regular routes and planned temporary routes during shutdowns
  • not between the Järnvägsgatan and Olof Palmes Torg stops from 9 pm to 4 am
  • one passenger at a time
  • one passenger at a time with a child younger than 10
  • a passenger with an attendant

 

Tell the driver when you get on the bus

Tell the driver as soon as you get on the bus that you want to get off between two stops. If the need arises while you are on the bus, you may ask the driver until you pass the stop before you want to get off.

 

The driver will tell you if the place where you want to get off won’t work so you can suggest another one. Assuming the place you propose appears reasonable, the driver will tell you for sure as you approach it and the situation becomes clearer. If there is no safe place to get off, the bus will continue to the next stop.

 

Sit close to the driver so you can talk about it as you come closer to the place you have suggested.

 

Where can the bus let you off?

Night Stop is available only for safe places. The driver decides if a place is safe based on both its location and the traffic at the time. Even if a place is typically safe, the particular circumstances may tell another story.

You can never get off between the Järnvägsgatan and Olof Palmes torg stops.

 

Night Stop may be permitted:

 

  • along regular routes, as well as planned temporary routes during shutdowns
  • on stretches where the speed limit is 50 km an hour or less
  • at parking slots, etc., where the speed limit is more than 50 km an hour

 

Night Stop is not permitted if a place has:

 

  • obstacles along the side of the road that make it dangerous for the bus to stop or for you to get off
  • snow banks that make it dangerous for the bus to stop. If the driver determines that it is safe for the bus, it is up to you whether you want to deal with deep snow or continue to the next stop
  • a group of people who are waiting there. The risk is too high that you will end up in an insecure situation or that the others will try to get on the bus
  • a potential for personal injury due to weather or other conditions

 

If the need arises while you are on the bus, you may ask the driver until you pass the stop before you want to get off and sit close to the front. The driver will tell you as soon as possible whether the place is safe or not.

 

Leave through the front door

Normally you will need to leave the bus through the front door. That minimizes the danger that others will try to get off at the same time. If you have a baby stroller or wheelchair, you are welcome to use the middle door instead.
