GoTriangle has several service changes starting this Summer 2017, including updates to Route 100, Route 300 and the FRX. These service enhancements are funded via the half-cent sales and use tax approved by Wake County voters last November in support of the Wake County Transit Plan.
Beginning August 6, 2017, Route 100 and Route 300 will join the rest of GoTriangle’s core routes in 30-minute service, Monday through Saturday, from 6AM until 7PM, allowing customers that much more freedom and flexibility with their midday and Saturday trips. On July 3, Route FRX will be continued, though at a lower frequency. Wake Transit funding will take over NCDOT funding due to the Fortify project ending.
Route 100 midday trips (from 9:30am-1:30pm) will increase from hourly to every 30 minutes on Monday through Saturday. Route 100 Sunday trips will remain hourly. Route 100 serves downtown Raleigh, NC State University, RDU Airport, and the Regional Transit Center (RTC).
Route 300 midday trips will increase from hourly to every 30 minutes. Route 300 Saturday trips will also increase from hourly to every 30 minutes, until 6pm. Route 300 will add new hourly Sunday service. Route 300 serves downtown Cary, NC State University, and downtown Raleigh.
Route FRX (Fuquay-Varina – Raleigh Express) will now provide three trips to Raleigh in the morning with one reverse trip to Fuquay-Varina and in the afternoon, and three trips to Fuquay-Varina with one trip to Raleigh, Monday through Friday. In addition, the Raleigh downtown routing will be adjusted to improve reliability.
