What do you mean not every hour on the hour?

Patron- I want to take the bus from here to Tucson.

I found 2 departure times- something like 7am and 7pm. I explained this to the patron, and he asked if the times would be different if he left from downtown. I researched it to find that his choices would be either 6:30 am or 6:30 pm. He just didn't get it.

Patron: So if I miss the one at 7am I have to wait until 7pm? There's only 2 buses to Tucson a day?

After we worked through that, he asked where the box office was in Tucson. Silly me, I was thinking about theatre tickets. However, he wanted the post office. I should have told him that we are about two blocks away from a post office- no bus required and he can leave any time!
