Kyoto bus from Kyoto Station to Ohara 2018/7/5 08:29
I will be at Kyoto Station on Thursday Dec 6, 2018 and plan to catch the direct bus to OHARA. I need to find out the bus schedule(s), round trip cost, and the Kyoto station bus stop number. I believe I need to take the #17 or #18 Kyoto Bus.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

The fare is 550 yen each way.
See the schedule here: http://www.kyotobus.jp/route/timetable/pdf/kyotoekimae_01.pdf

Note that Kyoto Bus is different from Kyoto City Bus.

You might better buy Kyoto City Bus & Subway One-Day Pass (900 yen):

As you see, you can take subway from Kyoto station to Kokusaikaikan and then transfer to Kyoto bus No. 19.

In general avoid bus if possible. Specifically in the city center. If you can take train (including subway) it would be much better. No traffic jam, and less crowds.

Thank you Miyako and Frog1954 for the links and information. As I have leg problems and therefore find it difficult to do transfers (subway and bus), I'll use the direct bus from Tokyo Station to Ohara and return the same way as it is supposed to be only a hour trip each way. I'll be sure to avoid rush hours. Thank you both for your kind help.

The bus stop for Ohara is C3 in this map. This is the ground floor. Even if you don't take subway, you might better buy 900 yen Bus Subway one day pass which covers Ohara. One day bus pass (600 yen) does not cover Ohara so you must pay additional 640 yen (Hanazonobashi to Ohara, 320 yen*2).

Frog1954, thank you for the advice and I will be getting the Kyoto City Bus & Subway One-Day Pass (900 yen) as it appears to cover the round trip to Ohara from the Kyoto Station at a lower price than paying 550 yen each way. Thanks again.
