Allow Extra Time and Stay Safe While Traveling During Winter Weather

Fairfax Connector passengers are reminded to plan ahead and take steps to stay safe while traveling. For safer, more bearable travel during winter weather:

  • Plan ahead and decide on a route that keeps you waiting outside for the shortest time possible. It is important to arrive at your bus stop five minutes before the listed arrival time of your bus.

  • Watch your footing and take your time when walking in icy conditions. Here are some tips:

    • Take small steps when you walk and slide your feet across the pavement rather than using your typical stride. If you have to walk up or down an incline, turn sideways and slide your feet apart and together in a sliding side-step motion.
    • Bend your knees slightly and ensure your feet are slightly apart for better balance.
    • Look at the ground while you are walking so you can see icy patches.
  • Dress appropriately for the cold weather meaning you are not exposing any skin to the cold, so you are wearing a hat, mittens or gloves, a scarf, socks, warm boots or shoes, and a warm jacket. Thick, loose clothing and lots of layers are ideal.
