===Overlapping routes===
 
Sometimes, pairs of routes have substantial overlapping sections. Two or more bus or rail routes may have different origins or destinations at both ends, but have a common section in the middle that overlaps, thereby enabling riders who are traveling strictly within this zone to have a choice of routes. In some systems, schedules are planned carefully so buses traveling in this section have evenly spaced schedules, thereby enabling a doubled frequency of service.

===Express/limited services===
 
Some bus and rail routes function as ''"express"'' or ''"limited stop,"'' meaning that they will bypass at least some of the stops along their route. Such a route may stop where you plan to board, but will bypass the place where you plan to alight, and may even travel a substantial distance before you are allowed off the bus. Before boarding such a bus, be sure it stops near your destination.
