Getting Started

The first step in planning your trip is to decide the starting point, where you want to go, and what day and time you want to travel. The RTA system map will help you determine which route or routes you will take. The route directory on page 24 can also help you determine the bus route(s) that serve several key locations throughout the county.

Once you have determined the route(s) you need, follow these simple steps to plan your trip:
  1. On the route map, locate the beginning and ending point of your bus trip.
  2. Locate the time point closest to your beginning and ending bus trip location. Time points are indicated on the route maps by a number inside a circle.
    NOTE: Each time point on the route map has a corresponding column on the timetable. Not all bus stops are indicated on the map and there are many bus stops between each time point.
  3. Find the column on the correct timetable that corresponds with your selected time point. Be sure you are using the timetable for the correct day of the week and direction of travel. Read down the column below the time point to find the time closest to your desired departure. Time for stops between time points can be estimated by adding the amount of time it will take the bus to get from the previous time point to your stop.
