Yea, they run about once every 45 min to an hour here, and even then they
don't make any garentees about time and service.   One time I needed the bus
to get to an interview across town, twenty min. if I had my car, I left 2
hrs early, half way thru, the ride, had to switch to a cab because with 30
min left, I was barley halfway to were I needed to be. I then took the bus
back to the interview, and it took 3 hrs. to get home, and this is a small

I'll never ride a bus again if I have a choice.
