A bus route timetable showing stops from SCC Transit Center to South Hill Park & Ride. Departure times for each stop are marked, with some times crossed out in red, indicating that the bus scheduled for 5:50 AM from SCC Transit Center is no longer active.

Routes with early service will maintain the same frequency as the posted schedule intervals.


The left column below shows Route 34, which is posted to start at 7:50 am and run every hour. So for MLK Jr. Day, service will instead begin at 5:50 am with the next departure at 6:50 am.

The column on the right shows Route 21, where service is posted to begin at 6:15 am and run every 30 minutes. For this route, service will begin only one hour earlier, so service begins at 5:15 am with the next departure 30 minutes later at 5:45 am.

The image shows two sets of time intervals. On the left, "1 hour interval" is labeled with times 5:50, 6:50, 7:50, and 8:50. On the right, "30 minute interval" is labeled with times 5:15, 5:45, 6:15, and 6:45. For each set, the starting times are paired with their subsequent intervals.
