Motorist Safety Guide

There have been several changes introduced to the road with Tempo Line 1T. These changes mean everyone needs to be extra cautious—particularly drivers in the area. We’ve put together this guide so you can easily navigate the new roadway. 

  • Stay in your lane: bus-only lanes are exclusively for buses and emergency vehicles and there is no physical barrier between the bus-only lane and multi-use traffic lanes
  • Tempo buses use special bus-only signals; use extra caution and only proceed when you have a green light
  • Share the road: be alert and watch for pedestrian crosswalks and bike lanes and don’t cut in front of buses, cyclists, or pedestrians
  • Take note of new traffic signals and signs, new left turn movements, and newly protected U-turns—make left turns and U-turns in designated areas
  • As always, park in designated parking areas; tickets will be issued to vehicles driving or parked in bus-only lanes and vehicles are subject to towing
