>>> I have found in dozens of trips traveling via bus in Mexico that schedules are never set in stone<<<
Quite true. What we did, in an effort to keep track of departure times, was to photograph a variety of the posted schedules behind the sales counters with our digital camera so we could review them later. In case a bus was cancelled or delayed, we had a way of planning alternate means of transportation.
For example, departing Morelia for Zihua, Parhikuni has buses at 00:05, 06:20, 07:00, 09:00, 11:00, 14:00 and Autovias's departures to Zihua were 01:15, 03:30, 04:40, 08:00, 13:45, 16:00, 18.50.
Another nice thing we experienced, was if one bus was leaving earlier than another one they had, the staff behind the counter would either send you down or take you to their competitors. That happened when we didn't realize daylight savings was over and we arrived to buy our tickets at the wrong time.
On another occasion, we wanted to get to SMA, so they took us to a competitor who went to Celaya and then we could take another bus to SMA from Celaya rather than wait for their scheduled departure to SMA.
All in all, I was very impressed with the bus service & would not hesitate to use it again -- which we plan to do again this coming fall during our vacation.
