Other Express Policies

Zero Tolerance Policy

Bay Transit Express has a strict Zero Tolerance policy. We do not tolerate the use of drugs or alcohol by drivers on the Bay Transit Express service platform nor do we tolerate inappropriate behavior by drivers towards passengers. If you believe that your driver may be under the influence of drugs or alcohol, if your driver is behaving in a manner that you consider inappropriate or that makes you feel uncomfortable or unsafe, or if your driver engages in conduct which could be considered unlawful or illegal, please ask the driver to terminate the trip immediately. If you feel that you are in imminent danger, please contact the police directly by calling 911. After the ride has concluded, please provide feedback using the Bay Transit Express app or email us at baytransitexpress@bayaging.org to report the issue.


Cigarette policy

Smoking of any kind is prohibited, including e-cigarettes, vaporizers, or smokeless cigarettes.


Eating/drinking policy

We know that you are on the go, but please help us keep our vehicles clean and fresh and avoid eating and/or drinking in the vehicles. Please also be mindful that smelly food can be distracting and unpleasant for your fellow passengers. Drinking alcohol and carrying open containers of alcohol in our vehicles is not allowed.


Groceries/carry-out item policy

We permit passengers to bring a reasonable amount of purchases/groceries with them on board. Bay Transit Express reserves the right to refuse service to anyone with excessive quantities (more than two or three grocery bags) of purchased items.

Phone call policy

Please remember your fellow passengers might not be interested in your phone conversations. We ask that you limit phone calls to quick logistics and emergencies during shared rides.
