Planning Your RT Trip

How to Read the Schedule & Timetable
Look at the maps and determine where you want to go. The numbers across the top of the timetable show the name, address, and order of stops along the route. Look at the column under each of the stops printed on the schedule. Each stop has a time list underneath to show when the bus arrives at that stop. Times are listed with the earliest time the bus stops at the top of the schedule and the latest time at the bottom.
