RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK (Sept. 20, 2021) – Because of the effects that the COVID-19 pandemic was having on travel patterns, GoTriangle replaced most of its daytime bus service to Raleigh-Durham International Airport with a shuttle service in October 2020. GoTriangle wants to continue that arrangement.
GoTriangle’s Route 105 and Route 100 had traveled the same route between downtown Raleigh and the Regional Transit Center except that Route 100 stopped at the airport. With the RDU Shuttle service in place, Route 100 now stops at RDU only nights, Sundays and holidays, and Route 105 has been temporarily suspended.
In its recommendation to continue the arrangement, GoTriangle considered the uncertainty that continues to surround the pandemic and the fact that the trip on Route 100 for daytime riders is 10 minutes shorter now for those traveling between Raleigh and the Regional Transit Center.
From the RTC, daytime air travelers can catch the RDU Shuttle, which runs every 30 minutes, to the airport.
Because these changes will have been in place for more than a year in October, federal guidelines require that the public have a chance to comment before the decision is made to continue them.
If you have any questions or feedback concerning this continued suspension, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 919-485-7433 from Sept. 20 through Oct. 20.
