Print Story PUBLIC TRANSPORT SCHEDULE INTERPRETATION FUN CHALLENGE
Welcome to the inaugural Public Transport Schedule Interpretation Fun Challenge (PTSIFC), in which I invite you to pit your wits against the vagaries of riding public transport in an unknown land.

The task is simple, and I will not subject you to the horrors of finding out which bus you have to take and where the bus stop is.

Solution under the fold.
