Reading a Bus Schedule
We understand that reading a bus schedule can seem a daunting task with the large amount of information that is presented and the fact that nobody wants to miss their bus, and we hope that this guide will make that task a little easier for our riders.
Our bus schedules can be obtained on the bus, at a hub, at our facility on East Main Street, or online through this website.
How to Read the Bus Schedule
- Look for the day of the week you plan to travel (weekday, Saturday, Sunday or holiday).
- Determine the direction you plan to travel, then look under the corresponding heading. Locate the nearest timepoint AHEAD of your bus stop, and read down the column to find the time closest to when you want to travel (AM or PM).
- The headings show major intersections, or locations along the route. Buses also stop at other posted bus stops along the route (on suburban or long-distance routes, operators may stop on request to pick up or discharge customers). Follow the listed times across from left to right, until you find the arrival time at your destination.
- Make sure a time is shown at your destination. If no time is listed, the bus will not serve that point. Many of our routes serve more than one destination, and may not operate to every location listed.
- If a letter appears in front of a time (for example: ), refer to the corresponding footnote printed to the right of the schedule for further information. Footnotes are important; they affect the route, times or conditions of service.
- Once you have your travel times, just go to your bus stop. And have your fare ready. One final caution: before you board, check the destination sign on the front of the bus. The sign will display the route number and destination.
