Rider's Guide

Riding the Bus is Easy Once You Learn How!

WAYNE X-PRESS operates along routes between scheduled stops. Buses pick up passengers at the scheduled stops, along the route, and within ¾ of a mile of the route.

There is no need to make a reservation for a pick up at a scheduled stop.

For a pick-up along the route, please call at least the day before your trip to schedule the pick-up or flag the bus from a safe location. To schedule a pick-up off the route, call WAYNE X-PRESS call at least the day before your trip.

If you have any questions, please call us at (304) 429-0070.

Passengers should arrive at their pick-up location at least five (5) minutes prior to the scheduled arrival time.  Due to safety issues, drivers are not permitted to pick up passengers that cross the street in front of the bus so all passengers must be sure they are standing on the same side of the street as the bus is traveling.  You must be clearly visible and flag the bus down as it is approaching.  Before boarding make sure it is the bus you wish to take.  If you are unsure, ask the driver to assist you.

Please have exact bus fare or pass ready before boarding.  Drivers do not give change.  Bus passes can be purchased by mail or at the WAYNE X-PRESS office at 3609 Hughes Street Huntington WV 25704.  Please call (304) 429-0070 for pricing information.

WAYNE X-PRESS will drop you off at scheduled stops, at any safe location along the route, and within ¾ of a mile along a route.  As you board, please let the driver know where you would like to be dropped off. Just before you reach your destination, pull the stop request cord.  Please be sure the driver has enough time to make a safe stop.  The bus will stop at the nearest corner after the stop request has been activated by the passenger.  After you exit, stand to the side of the road or on the sidewalk until the bus has pulled away.  For your safety, do not cross in front of the bus and obey all traffic signals.

Deviation Routes

Passengers wishing to be picked up in parts of some routes marked as a "Deviation Area" on our route guides and maps must call the office at (304) 429-0070 prior to the bus leaving to schedule the pick-up.
