The shuttle service is an on-demand service, it does not operate on a scheduled time table. It can be requested by phone or e-mail (e-mail should be sent at least a day before the market opens).

The local part of the number is also noted on the shuttle sign at the fence near the bus stop "To City" in front of the gas station.
