Waco Transit System
The Waco Transit System provides transit services to the immediate Waco area and surrounding communities. The transit services that effect the City of Robinson is a fixed route bus service that works as a flag stop system. There are designated stops for all routes and vehicles may be flagged for a stop at most places along the route. To “flag” a bus for a ride, the resident must position themselves on the correct side of the street well before any major intersection. Then attempt to make eye contact with the driver and wave your arm up arm up and down (not like a hello wave). If safe, the bus operator will stop the vehicle as close to your location as possible. Operators are instructed NOT to stop for citizens on the opposite side of the street, along busy highways or near congested intersections.
