The R-Line makes 15 downtown stops during the workday and 19 after 6:30 p.m. To plot your restaurant visits in advance, go to, then mouse over the dots on the map until you get to the restaurant or bar you want. (Be sure to take into account that the bus travels only counter-clockwise; you don’t want to stand on the corner after four highballs and debate which way is clockwise.)

Say you want to go to the Remedy Diner: Click on the dot and you’ll get a quick list of the address, hours, district and cuisine. Right beneath that are two tabs: Where is it? will pop up a zoomed-in map, and What’s nearby? will instantly list the closest parking decks, parking lots and R-Line stops.

So … for the Remedy, disembark at stop R19 (Hargett Street at Wilmington Street), which is exactly 64 feet west of the restaurant’s entrance. Pretty cool.
