? Re Legends For Siena Bus To Florence

I'm looking at the schedule for the rapid bus from Siena to Florence, http://www.trainspa.it/train04/extraurbano.pdf, and I don't see any rapid buses leaving before 11:10 on a Sunday. What does the "A" and "SAB" stand for?

Thanks.

Sab is Saturday (Sabato).

Just realized the A is workdays except Sat. So what's the SAB?

Are you asking about the bus number such as 131R or 131A or something at the top of the times?

I have a Siena Mobilita schedule book which includes the legends. FWIW - the bus that stops on Poggibonsi doesn't take much longer.

Legend:

Crossed hammers - work days - Mon-Sat.
Cross - Sundays/holidays
A (in a circle) - workdays excluding Sat.

>>>Sigh....so no early rapid bus!<<<

Pages 63-67 are the rapid bus.
Pages 59-62 are the slower bus.

You can also take the train, but it's not any faster than the slower bus.

As kybourbon sez - go to page 59. On page 59 I see Sunday buses, Linea 1310/A Siena-Colle Val d’Elsa-Poggibonsi-Firenze (Corse Ordinarie) leaving Siena V. Tozzi at 6:20 (arr. 7:55), 8:10 (9:45), 9:40 (11.15), 10:40 (12:15). They take only 20 minutes more than the “rapid” one - what’s the hurry?

SAB (sabato) means Saturday only.
