Vaporetto from Rialto to Piazzale Roma too full at 9am?

We need to take a vaporetto from Rialto to the bus station Thursday June 12 at about 9am. There are 2 of us. We will each have a small suitcase and a small backpack. How likely is it that the vaporetto will be so full that we will not be able to board and have to wait for another one?

How frequent are the vaporetto from Rialto to the bus station at this time?

How much time should we plan to arrive at Piazzale Roma?

It is a busy time, but as a lot of people get off at Rialto, you should be alright, sometimes quite frightening, how packed they are,

We found it was much quicker to walk than take the waterbus....depending on luggage etc it might be worth considering xx

Having just small bags, from Rialto is just a 20 minutes walk, so it can be an option.

I would not think you would have any problems at that hour on a Thursday morning boarding. I also doubt you could walk much faster than the n°2 line could get you there, as it would probably take closer to 30 minutes (Google.maps gives 23-26min, and are usually vary optimistic about times in Venice).
