  • You can further narrow the selection of route stops that will be displayed by selecting additional filters such as frequency or zip code, though these will be used infrequently as we typically want to view the entirety of someone's schedule for a given day.
  • When selecting the date or date range you wish to see on the map, it's is important to keep in mind that this will refer to the 'Assigned Date' column on the Route Schedule page.
