This reply may not fit your question, but RIPTA prints timetables for their routes. I used it last month when my wife and I stayed in Providence, RI and took RIPTA Route #60 to Newport and back. Thanks to Mr. RIPTA for supplying the schedule to me.

In case some fans are unaware of this development: About two months ago, I stopped by the Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York and inquired for a Bonanza timetable to Providence. The agent spent a minute at his computer terminal and issued me a timetable on a card that seemed to be ticket stock.

I wonder if this is going to mean the beginning of the end for the timetable collecting hobby. There is much history to be found in original issue, printed timetables, history that a computer generated card can never quite duplicate. Doesn't the PABT have timetable racks anymore? The few times I had been there, I had raided the racks on occasion. One way to start a collection may be gone.

Bonanza has been printing schedules like that for more than ten years, but they have also had small business card-sized printed timetables also. I'll try to swing by the main terminal and see if the cards are still available.

Thanks. Sure appreciate that. Isn't Bonanza now part of Peter Pan, which also swallowed up Arrow Line and a couple others?
