    hi,
    Can both of these be said? Or which one is correct:
    It depends on at what time the bus gets here. Or
    It depends at what time the bus gets here.
    thanks a lot

    Hello Unreg,

    Neither of those examples sounds quite right to me, as a BrE speaker – I would say:

    1. It depends on what time the bus gets here.

    Wait to see what other members say though – it may be different in other dialects.

    All the best,

    MrP
