FLAGGING YOUR BUS
Because every corner along the route is a bus stop, people standing at a corner may not be waiting for a bus. The driver can only be sure you are a bus rider if you wave as the bus approaches. Flagging eliminates unnecessary stops and guarantees you faster, more efficient bus service. So wave, ride and enjoy.
RIDING YOUR BUS
When you wish to get off, let the driver know by pulling the cord above your window 2/3 of a block before your stop. This gives the driver plenty of time to pull over and let you off. Exit from the rear door whenever possible, as new riders will be entering the front door.
NO SMOKING OR EATING ON THE BUS
For your benefit and the benefit of others, Maysville City Transit requests that you refrain from smoking while riding the bus. Not only is this a law, but it also keeps your bus cleaner, and you are not infringing on the rights of non-smokers. After all, it’s their bus, too.

HISTORY OF MAYSVILLE
Maysville has a long history of public transportation. Street cars were authorized by the Maysville City Commission in an ordinance dated March 12, 1883. The ordinance provided that they be drawn by mules only. An ordinance dated May 1, 1890 abolished the mule-drawn cars to make way for electrically powered cars.
The Maysville Transit Co. replaced the streetcars on Jan. 1, 1937. The fare was a nickel. The transit company made its last run on New Year’s Eve night in 1941, at the expiration of their 5 year franchise.
The transit system evolved over the years under the guidance of such families as the Hardymons, Tomlins, and Dukes, until the City of Maysville took over the system in 1960.
The City of Maysville has been providing public transportation for its citizens for over 45 years.
