(b) The Days upon which each trip will be given.
(c) The Distance between all points shown in the schedule.
(e) Any limitations of service contained in the certificate and any restriction or limitation of the service given at or between the points shown as served.
(4) At least one copy of each time schedule shall be posted on or before the date shown as the date of its issuance, in a conspicuous place, easily accessible for public inspection, at each dock, waiting room and regular stopping place on the route and on each vessel used.
(5) Two copies of each time schedule shall be filed with the commission at its Olympia headquarters on or before the date shown as the date of its issuance.
(6) Changes in the operation under a certificate which affect in any way the information or service shown in the time schedule then in effect must be made only after a new time schedule has been issued and been made effective as follows:
(a) A new time schedule must be issued, bearing the next consecutive number, and stating the number of the time schedule cancelled thereby as provided in subsection (2) of this section, as for example:
"Time Schedule No. 2
Time Schedule No. 1"
(b) Notice period required. Copies of the new time schedule shall be posted and filed, in accordance with subsections (3) and (4) of this section, at least fifteen days before the effective date thereof. Exception: If the sole change accomplished by a new time schedule is to increase the number of runs on an established route currently operated, and no change is otherwise made in existing schedules, the filing must be made with the commission not less than one full day before the effective date and advance notice to the public will not be required.
(c) After such fifteen days, the new time schedule will be considered in full force and effect, unless ordered withdrawn, modified or suspended.
