This is the eighty-fifth puzzle in Professor Layton and the Last Specter. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Mick. In order to solve this puzzle, you must figure out the minimum numbers of buses needed to service the bus stop.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    The key to this puzzle is that it takes a bus one hour to return to this stop. Look at the timetable, and figure out which times a single bus could cover.

Hint Two
    If the first bus leaves at 7:05, it will return at 8:05. So different buses will be required for 7:15 and 7:40. Follow this logic to figure out how many buses are needed in total.

Hint Three
    Three buses are needed from 7:00. Two of the buses return in time for the 8:10 and 8:20 departures, but an extra bus will be required to cover the 8:30 departure.
    How many buses are needed in all?

Super Hint
    Four buses are required for the timetable to run smoothly until 8:30, but one extra bus is needed to depart at 11:10.

    You should be able to figure out if any more buses are needed for the rest of the timetable.
