Transit Tools Take the guesswork out of waiting for the bus. Centro’s real-time bus tracking tools  can help.  https://www.centro.org/service_schedules/transit-tools

 Strollers, Walkers & Carts

All of the above are allowed on the Centro bus, as long as they do not block the aisle, and are stowed so they will not fly forward during a sudden stop. A good rule of thumb is to bring only what you can carry on and off the bus in one trip.
