In Manhattan and other New York cities, there are numerous ways of getting around. Transportation options include individual vehicles, trains, subways, cabs, buses, bicycling and, of course, going on foot. In busy cities and other areas, choosing to be a pedestrian does have some risks. Pedestrians must watch other traffic and follow crosswalks and signs when entering roadways.
At the same time, drivers in such areas must be aware of pedestrians and take action to avoid pedestrian accidents. This is true of all drivers including bus drivers.
