If you are riding on a bus or light rail this summer, there are steps you can take to try to stay healthy in the hot weather.

The city of Phoenix recommends anyone using public transit bring water with them to stay hydrated and to help fight heat exhaustion. City officials also suggest you cover your skin with lightweight clothes and wear a hat or possibly bring an umbrella when outdoors.

In order to reduce the time you are standing or sitting outside for a bus or light rail outdoors, check schedules ahead of time to determine wait times. Find schedules at valleymetro.org.

The city of Phoenix has a summer safety plan with tips about swimming, hiking, preventing fires and other activities. Learn more at phoenix.gov/pio/summer.
