    The SA bus will depart the Santa Rosa station immediately after the arrival of the 7:45 am train that will be northbound (coming from the south). 
    Any student who comes from the north, on the southbound train, will arrive at 7:21 am and wait for the SA bus that will arrive before 7:45 am. 
    Students may be a few minutes late to their 8 am class as it can take 10-15 minutes for the bus to arrive at SA. These students will not be marked tardy for a late arrival.

    Students coming from the south will arrive on the train at 8:49 am.

    We will also have our late shuttle that we hire out to West County Transportation, which will be departing at 6:25 pm in the second semester. This will allow southbound students to take the 6:48 pm train, and northbound students the 6:40 pm or 7:12 pm train.
