Service Changes

GoTriangle typically updates bus service twice a year as new routes are rolled out and existing routes are adjusted.

Currently approved changes

For our August 5, 2018 service change, GoTriangle is planning to implement:

The CRX and DRX schedules were adjusted significantly based on public comments - please review the final schedules below.

Chapel Hill - Raleigh Express

Thanks to the successful transit referendum in Wake County, GoTriangle plans to add a vehicle to Route CRX to reduce the gaps between scheduled trips. After receiving public comments, the schedule was adjusted to provide more time between shift ends at UNC and the departure of Route CRX from South Rd at Student Stores in the afternoon. The proposed 6:00 PM trip from Chapel Hill to Raleigh was moved later, to 6:40 PM.
