On Jan. 2, 2018, GoTriangle replaced its RTP shuttles 42, 46, 47 and 49 with on-demand transit services. These services allow riders to request a ride Monday through Friday through the TransLoc Rider app by selecting pickup and dropoff locations within RTP and surrounding areas.
Riders can request rides anytime between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. with final dropoff at 6:30 p.m. Download TransLoc Rider in the Apple Store or on Google Play. You can also book a trip from your desktop at ondemand.transloc.com. If you don't have an internet connection, just call GoTriangle at (919) 314-8777 to request services.
After a fare-free period lasting to June 30, 2018, fares will become $2.25 a trip with free transfers to other non-express routes, identical to our existing shuttle fares.
