Bus schedules especially change with seasons and even days of the week. If there’s a holiday, the schedule will also be different. Double check the schedule and have a backup plan. We’ve been stranded at a train station several times because of some holiday unknown to us.
Additionally, be aware of strikes. These are announced in advance so you can plan around them, but there are often transportation strikes that leave very few options that day and they are always crowded.
