Tard/en retard.

What is the difference between "tard" and "en retard" in French? Don't they both mean late?

Je suis en retard à mon rendez-vous. I am late for my appointement.
Ne te couche pas trop tard ce soir. Don't go to bed too late tonight.
Désolé, mon bus avait du retard. Sorry, my bus was late.

so tard is an adverb and retard is kind of an adjective?
