How do I read the bus schedules?

First: Find the route that gets you closest to your destination. Determine which way the Route runs by the arrows on the map. (Some routes include an A and B segment which typirally mean they run in a clockwise, and counter clockwise schedule.

Second: Find the time-point nearest your stop. If the bus will pass your stop before the time-point, be sure to give your self a few extra minutes to catch the bus.

Third: Read down the list of times to determine what the closest arrival time for that stop will be to get your to your destination on time. 

Fourth: Sit back and relax, and let us do the driving!

Why isn’t my stop listed?

Buses stop at all bus stops if someone is waiting for the bus. There are close to 500 bus stops throughout the Visalia Transit service area. Our Transit Guide would be a fairly large and complicated book if we listed them all. Instead “time-points” are listed as general indicators of the route taken. Simply determine where your stop is located in relation to the listed time-points to find the best place to get on or off to get you where you need to go. When in doubt, please arrive a few minutes early or confirm a pick-up time from a Greenline Operator (1-877-404-6473).
