A
Popular destinations form the basis of the schedule and these bus stops are usually easily identifiable. Just as if you’re reading a book, the schedule is read from left to right and from top to bottom. The numbers indicate the order of the stops on the schedule. 

B
These numbered stops indicate a transfer point. At these stops you can transfer to another route. 

C
Times listed in the schedule are called time points. Each time point represents the departure time of the bus. Buses are not able to leave a time point early. If the route arrives early, the driver will pause for a few minutes until the departure time is reached.

D
The last time point represents when and where the bus will go out of service.

E
The numbers on the map correspond to a time point on the schedule. The map gives a visual representation of where the time point falls within the route.
