The Unitrans P & Q Bus Lines are the counterclockwise (P) and clockwise (Q) loops that encompass most of the town. The lines pass by almost every major shopping center and numerous apartment complexes. Most of the town is within a short walking distance from a P/Q bus stop. In addition, the P and Q lines are the most expensive weekday Unitrans routes to operate due to their long routes.
This route seems to be very popular among the town-folk, due to the wide coverage. Don’t forget to yield the front seats to senior citizens!
These routes also have "tripper" buses during peak hours. The P tripper starts at Anderson and Hanover and the Q tripper at Cowell and Pole Line. To avoid being late, the P tripper turns into the K (Arlington-Humboldt-Arthur instead of Arlington-Russell).

Note that timed transfers to other bus lines are not guaranteed, but you may ask the driver about a transfer, so he or she may notify the other bus.
