See you later /si:jʌ ˈleɪtə

(expression) (informal) Usage note: This is the usual term used by all speakers.

A way of saying ‘Goodbye’. It does not necessarily mean that the person expects to see you again. It is the same as saying 'See ya'.

Example: Well, I’d better run. See ya later. Bye all. (http://www.academyofbards.org/fanfic/b/bsoiree_whenwemet9.html)
