Done to death I know...but SITA bus to The Mall outlet...

Hi,
have done a search here but could not find an answer.
There is a SITA bus allegedly that leaves Florence and stops at the Mall for only 2.50 euro one way.
My Italian is dreadful so did not have much luck looking at the site...
Can anyone help with bus number, times etc? I know I can go by tour or even private car for around 25-30 euro each...but if I can go by public bus..all the better.

Hi again,
I tried a bit harder and found that bus S335 leave Florence at 0900 hours and arrives at the Mall around 0943 hours.
The same bus departs The Mall back to Florence at 1200 hours.
Could not find a afternoon timetable...
if anyone can add any other info that would be great as my Italian is dreadful,...Sita on line

SITA finally answered my pathetic email re bus time table to The Mall...
The timetable:
Departs Florence SITA Bus station:
Monday to Sat: 09.00 arrives Mall 09.55
Monday to Sat: 12.00,arrives Mall 12.55
Daily: 13.25 arrives Mall 14.19

Departs the Mall to Florence
Daily: 11.37 arrives Florence 12.25
Daily: 18.37 arrives Florence 19.25
Monday to Saturday: 1200 arrives Florence 12.55
Monday to Friday (13/9 to 4/6)
16.55 arrives Florence 17.55
Monday to Friday (6/6 to 10/9)
17.20 arrives Florence 18.20
hope this helps someone besides me! Happy that I'll only pay a few euro's instead of many to get there!
