Timetables

We use timetables all the time in daily life – for lessons in school, for the TV

guide or even when you’re catching a bus.  When reading timetables, you

must make sure that you find out what the units of time being used are, then

use that to find the information you need.

Some timetables are easier to read than others, but it’s all a matter of finding

the pattern.

Example 2.

 Bus A Bus B Bus C Johnson  Avenue 10:10 10:08 10:11 Wood  Lane 10:20 10:17 Granger  Street 10:25 10:23 Mellor  Road 10:31 10:29 Hampton  Drive 10:47 10:44

‘This is part of a bus timetable in Alisha’s town. Alisha arrives at the   Granger Street stop at 10:18. Which bus would she take to Hampton Drive and how long would it take?’

If we read the timetable, we can see that buses, Bus A and Bus B, will leave from Granger Street, but only Bus A will go to Hampton Drive.

The bus journey will take 22 minutes and she will have to wait at the stop for 7 minutes.

22 + 7 = 29 so it will take Alisha 29 minutes to get to Hampton Drive.
