C12 bus line from Lugano to Menaggio

My family and I are making the long journey from the Berner Oberland to Lago Como in one day, and a critical part of the journey is proving difficult. We are planning to take the C12 bus from Lugano to Menaggio – on a Sunday. So of course the schedule is different than it would be on weekdays, and we just want to make sure we're reading it correctly.

We are working with this timetable: http://www.asfautolinee.it/wr-resource/upload/ORARI%20PDF/ORARI_ESTIVO/C12.pdf?cbck=wrReq93922

It looks like the times that we need are on pages 5 and 6.

If I am reading the schedule correctly, there are no Sunday departures from Cassarate Terminal Bus station, where a bus usually departs for Menaggio. There are, however, two afternoon departure times on Sundays from Station Nord – 15:41 and 15:50. It seems that it would be more convenient for us, since we will be arriving at the train station at 15:17 and it would be a shorter distance to travel to Station Nord.

Am I interpreting this correctly? It's going to be a long travel day with an 11 and 7 year old, and I really want to be sure we're not going to screw up the last little leg of this journey by turning up at the wrong bus station!
