      --- Help us save resources! 
           We ask that you save your bus schedule for future use to help conserve 
           resources. METRO schedules are typically updated -- three times per year:
           January, May & September.

           Please reuse Transit Guides and METRO route schedules. 
           This helps save $ and resources. 
           The next edition of the Regional Transit Guide is scheduled to print in May 2011.
           Service changes will be communicated online and on tear offs (located in buses)
           when appropriate.
