Times listed in columns below each Timing Point number is when buses are scheduled to leave that stop. The stop locations and Timing Point number are one and the same. The timing points listed are for reference and do not represent the only places the bus will stop. You should be at your stop at least 5 minutes before your bus is due to arrive.

There is a $3.00 charge for replacement B-ID cards. Your B-ID card may be used to purchase a reduced fare monthly bus pass for use on fixed routes (reduced fares are available only on fixed route services). Reduced fare passes are available for sale by mail or at the CCRTA Customer Service Center.

While Riding

To request a stop, pull the cord or press the red button located on the rails of the bus at least a block before your destination. As the bus nears the stop, walk to the rear door holding on to the straps or rails, until the bus comes to a complete stop. For your safety, walk to the nearest marked crosswalk or intersection to cross the street.
