We ask that you please be patient and understand that this is a new schedule that is being implented.
Some scheduling difficulties are expected, just growing pains.
We trust that you will find it an improvement over the old schedule once it is in place.
One main difference you may enjoy is the reduction of delays due to holidays falling on a Monday!

We apologize for any inconvenience, and ask that you please be patient.
