Route Schedules

The Route Schedules page allows site visitors to view stop-level timetables of the planned transit schedule for a selected route & direction at a selected stop for a selected date. Figure 6‑8 illustrates the Route Schedules page for an example selected timetable.

The timetable is presented in tabular format. Table columns represent individual vehicle trips serving the selected route & direction ordered chronologically from left to right. Table rows represent stops sorted from top to bottom in the order that they are visited along the selected route & direction by vehicle trips . Table cells display the schedule vehicle arrival/departure/passing time for the vehicle trip at the transit stop identified at left.
