Also, within that site I found this.....
Also I found these schedules for the express buses from Chetumal to Belize City. There are other non-express buses through the day. Times were prior to March, 2009.
1. PREMIER LINES EXPRESS BUS SERVICE
Premier Lines (an affiliate of the Belizean bus company, National Transport Services) provides express bus service between Belize City and Chetumal. Buses depart Chetumal from the ADO terminal and arrive at the Belize City Bus Terminal (commonly known as Novelo’s) located on West Collet Canal. The buses are a bit better than the Bluebird school buses and some are first-class type; all have air-conditioning though it might not function. There are stops for passengers at Orange Walk and Corozal.
Depart Belize City: 6:00 am, 9:00 am and 11:00 am daily
Depart Chetumal: 10:45 am, 1:45 pm and 4:45 pm.
Duration & cost: about 3 hours & BZ$16.00
2. Two Guatemalan bus companies, Linea Dorada and San Juan Express Bus Service, provide bus service between Flores, Belize City and Chetumal. Buses depart Chetumal from the ADO terminal and arrive arrive at the Belize City Water Taxi / Marine Terminal on North Front Street near the Swing Bridge. Buses operate on Sundays and public holidays. Not all buses are air-conditioned. The schedule below was in effect on 1 December 2008 but always confirm times before travel.
CHETUMAL TO BELIZE CITY (161 km / 100 miles / about 3 hours)
San Juan Bus departs 5:00 am daily: US$ 10.00
Linea Dorada departs 6:00 am daily: US$ 10.00
The Linea Dorada bus boards in the bus terminal. The San Juan bus boards outside the terminal.
3. Belizean buses (mostly non-express but there are some express) depart Chetumal from Nuevo Mercado every half hour beginning at 4:00 am; last departure at 5:45 pm.
There are several bus lines on this route, Tillets, Gilharry, Venus and others.
