Bus Scheduling is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future.


It takes you one hour to get to the office by bus. Your work takes two hours to complete, after which you catch the bus home.

Based on the departure times listed below, which bus, A,B,C,D, or E, should you take to work in order to minimize the wait for a ride home?

Note: The departure times for the buses home are listed to the right.

It doesn't matter what time you get to work, so you can take any of the buses and be fine. But once you get there, you're stuck taking whatever bus leaves the soonest after you finished working.

Start your thinking from there.

For example, suppose there was a bus you could take to the office at 12:30pm. In this case, you would arrive at 1:30pm. It takes two hours to finish your work, so by the time you were done, it would be 3:30pm. That's the soonest you could catch a bus home.

So for each of the buses going to the office, figure out what time you'd be done working and ready for a ride home.

You're not overlooking any choices because they seem to late, are you?

As long as you get your work done, you can show up at whatever time works best for you.

Go to work late, head home first thing in the morning: this schedule is the most time effective, so which bus is it?



Too bad!

Maybe making some notes on the bus timetable will help you work it out.



Taking bus E to work at midnight will result in the shortest wait for a ride home. Your bus will leave home at 5:00am.
