Maybe you mean "acknowledge" ("quittieren")?
Not exactly

To quit = to exit, to leave.
sich befreien = to dispense from, to unchain, to exonerate, to exempt,
to free from, but none of these translations is very exact in the
context. To exit or to leave wouldn't be wrong in my opinion.
"the driver may 'cancel' the stop announcement" is probably an
appropriate phrasing in English
