Bus from Catania to Taormina

Can anyone direct me to where I can get a bus timetable from Catania to Taormina and return? Websites seem vague on the detail. So far I've been able to glean that bus is better than rail because there's no rail station in Taormina so you have to get a bus as well anyway, that the nearest bus station to Catania's cruise terminal is Marteri Liberta (I think) which is an uncovered bus-parking-lot on the corner of Via Archimede and Via Liberta, and that there is approx 1 bus each way per hour, or less during siesta. But an actual timetable and/or route map is proving hard to find. The only promising site (offering a download of all this) was blocked by my computer security package as a potentially unwanted site.

ps. I typed in a random date next week; you need to insert your dates of travel.

Thank you ekscrunchy. I had got onto the etnatrasporti.it website, but nothing led me to that particular page - exactly the page I needed!

I see that the return trips Taormina-Catania become quite sparse between midday and 4pm (siesta?) which is critical for us returning to the ship by 4:30pm. To be on the safe side we will probably aim for a bus at 2pm, arriving back in Catania just after 3pm. Is it ever known that these buses get full and that passengers can't get on them?
