New Holiday Schedule

GoTriangle is proposing a new holiday schedule, which would provide service on more holidays. All holidays would use a Sunday schedule instead of a Saturday schedule, to match GoRaleigh, GoDurham, and GoCary.

On these holidays, GoTriangle would operate Sunday service:

  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day (July 4)
  • Labor Day
  • Day After Thanksgiving *
  • Christmas Eve (December 24)
  • New Year's Day (January 1)
  • Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Birthday *

GoTriangle would continue to close on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. All other days would have normal service, including Good Friday (which is currently a holiday with Saturday service). The new schedule would begin with the Day after Thanksgiving (Friday, November 23, 2018).

* Currently, service on the Day after Thanksgiving and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Birthday ends around 10:30 PM since these days use a Saturday schedule. Under this proposal, service would end earlier, around 8:30 PM.
