Note that the place where you change buses is called Poggibonsi.

You change buses (from the SITA bus to the TRA-IN bus) directly in front of the Poggibonsi train station.

There are fewer bus connections on Sundays, but adequate connections from Monday through Saturday. If the connection time is reasonable (10-15 minutes), this can be a very enjoyable trip by bus, and the leg between San Gimignano and Poggibonsi is quite scenic.

Great! I will take the bus rather than the train as it sounds more scenic. Thankyou very much for the info. Ing55
