DMT drivers, managers, riders to develop conduct code

The safety of DMT riders and drivers is an important concern for the management of Danville Mass Transit. One of the projects we are working on to help with this goal is the development of a Rider Code of Conduct. When completed, this Code will establish for riders a list of expected behaviors as well as the behaviors that DMT drivers will not tolerate.

DMT employees have already begun drafting the Rider Code of Conduct, however, we are seeking the involvement of riders in developing this code. If you are interested in participating in this process, please contact the Director at 217-431-0653 or by email at

In addition, DMT management is making plans to invest in a better security camera system aboard buses, and is providing additional training for bus drivers in dealing with customer conflicts and threatening situations.

Working together, we can ensure everyone's safety while riding DMT buses.
