Shuttle 46
After conducting public outreach, Service Planning staff have decided not to propose a new schedule for Shuttle 46 as part of the August 2016 service change.

Route 105

Reason for Change
Increased traffic congestion is causing about one of every four trips on Route 105 to arrive late to GoRaleigh Station. 

Approved Service Change
Route 105 will no longer serve the District Dr. Park-and-Ride, allowing most trips time to arrive to GoRaleigh Station on time.

Alternate Service
Route 105 Park-and-Ride customers may be able to use the Cary Train Station Park-and-Ride on Route 300, or one of the Park-and-Rides along Route 201. Route 105 customers being dropped off at District Dr Park-and-Ride can be dropped off at stops along Hillsborough St instead. After receiving public feedback, Service Planning staff are also allowing Route CRX to accept passengers at District Dr Park-and-Ride during the evening commute. This allows current Route 105 customers who ride from GoRaleigh Station to District Dr Park-and-Ride in the morning, and back in the evening, to switch to Route CRX.

Routes 400/405

In response to public comments, GoTriangle significantly altered the service changes for Routes 400 and 405.

Route 400 will continue to serve SW Durham Dr, University Dr, and Westgate Dr during peak commute hours (Monday – Friday, 6:30 AM – 9:30 AM and 3:45 PM – 6:45 PM), when most activity along those streets takes place. However, outside of peak commute hours, it will bypass those streets. Patterson Place will be the only stop between Franklin St and Erwin Rd. This will make trips about 10 minutes faster for passengers traveling between Durham and Chapel Hill. (At off-peak times, passengers along University Dr or Westgate Dr can use GoDurham Routes 10 and 10A to get to Durham Station or Patterson Place, where they can transfer to their final destination.)

To complement the faster off-peak trips, Route 400’s span and frequency are being increased. Monday through Saturday, it will run every 30 minutes until 7:00 PM. (Right now, Route 400 only runs every 60 minutes midday and Saturday.)

Route 405 will be rerouted to provide direct service to the town of Carrboro, along Jones Ferry Rd and Main St. In the morning, trips headed to Durham will start in Carrboro instead of starting at UNC Hospitals. In the evening, trips leaving Durham will end in Carrboro instead of ending at UNC Hospitals.

Compared to the original proposal, there are two disadvantages. First, since Route 400 continues to serve SW Durham Dr, University Dr, and Westgate Dr, Routes 400 and 405 will continue to depart Chapel Hill at the same time. The original proposal will have staggered their departure times to provide service every 15 minutes between Durham and Chapel Hill at peak. The Service Planning staff will continue to pursue additional peak-hour frequency along US 15-501 within the next few years.

Second, passengers who currently board Route 405 in the morning at UNC Hospitals, or ride Route 405 to UNC Hospitals in the afternoon, will not have a direct trip to Durham under the revised proposal. They will either have to take Route 400, or walk to/from Route 405 on Franklin St.

Route 700

Reason for Change

Work on the Alston Ave (NC 55) Widening project is expected to begin in the Fall. The project will temporarily close the ramps used by Route 700 to serve Alston Ave. and Lawson St.

Approved Service Change

Route 700 will operate nonstop between the Regional Transit Center (RTC) and Durham Station at all times – no longer serving Alston Ave., Lawson St., Cornwallis Rd. nor Davis Dr.

The map below shows the changes, with the Approved routing shown in red, and sections and stops no longer served in blue.

Alternate Service

Alston Ave. and Lawson St. will still be served by GoDurham. Passengers at the RTC could take Route 700 to Durham Station and transfer to Route 8 (Lawson St.) or Route 12 (Alston Ave.).

Davis Dr. (Shuttle 42) and Cornwallis Rd. (Shuttle 47) will be served at peak commute times.

Back to top of page.


CRX

Reason for Change

Increased traffic congestion is causing significant unreliability on Route CRX. Route CRX’s schedule will be updated to reflect actual travel times. The current proposal for a new schedule is below. After receiving public feedback, Service Planning staff altered the schedule to allow CRX buses to accept passengers at South Rd at Student Stores during the morning commute, and to accept passengers at District Dr Park-and-Ride during the evening commute.
