Using NextBus & the CUE Transit Guide
Four CUE Bus routes operate during weekdays and weekends according to the published schedules. There are a couple different ways to estimate when the next CUE bus will arrive.
The easiest way is to check the NextBus website or app. NextBus allows you to select your stop and get a real-time prediction of when the CUE bus will arrive at that stop. You can also estimate the arrival time based on the CUE transit guide. The CUE bus map lists only a few points of time along each CUE route. Identify where your stop falls between two of the scheduled time points to determine the arrival time.
