Bus Routes and Schedules
Unsure about which bus to take?
The easiest way to plan a trip using transit - especially if you're unsure about which route to take or what time to take it - is to use the Google Transit trip planning widget on this page. Alternatively, go to maps.google.com and use the Directions tool (be sure to specify "transit" as your mode of travel)!
The trip planner will automatically select the best bus route for you to take, based on your origin and destination - it will even suggest trips operated by the AAATA when they’re more efficient.
