Schedules and maps for each C-TRAN route can be viewed or downloaded from the "Routes" menu above. Printed schedule books (Rider's Digest) are also available at any one of our Passenger Service offices.
Route schedules include a map and timetable:
Timepoints on the map are numbers along the route that coincide with numbers above each column on the timetable. You can determine when a bus is expected at a specific point on the map by looking at the column with the same number above it on the timetable.
- Choose the schedule for the route that is closest to where you want to start your trip.
- Find the timepoint on the route map that is closest to where you want to start your trip.
- Find the column with the same timepoint label above it. The times listed in that column show when the bus will pass by that point on the map.
- If your bus stop is between timepoints, use the earlier timepoint to catch your bus.
- If you need to take more than one route to complete your trip, locate the nearest transfer point or transit center on the System Map.
- We will do our best to be on time. Variations in weather and traffic conditions make it difficult to always operate on schedule.
- Periodic schedule adjustments up to 3 minutes may be necessary between schedule printings. Route schedules on this web site should reflect current schedules accurately.
Riding C-TRAN Is Easy
If you need help planning your trip, use our on-line Trip Planner or call Passenger Service at (360) 695-0123. When you’ve determined what bus to catch and the time it is expected to arrive, follow these simple steps:
- Wait at a C-TRAN bus stop or shelter. C-TRAN has more than 1,400 bus stops clearly marked with the route number of each bus serving that stop.
- Be sure you are visible to the driver. Stand close to the sign or shelter and watch for the approaching bus.
- Have your cash fare or pass ready. Exact fare please - drivers carry no change.
- Allow other passengers to get off the bus before you board.
- Place your cash fare or ticket into the fare box or show the driver your pass.
- About one block before your stop, signal the driver by pressing the yellow or black bell strip on the wall near the bus window.
