Alley dock backing (drivers's side)
 

When performing an alley dock, backing from the driver’s side is recommended.

    • Position your bus to the angled direction you want it to take.
    • Turn steering wheel to the left while backing slowly.
    • Look out driver’s window to monitor the rear while checking mirrors.
    • If the turn is too early or sharp, turn wheels slightly to the right accordingly. If the turn is too late or wide, adjust wheels by turning it to the left.
