I’m posting this here purely for posterity. If you didn’t see it recently, bus service is starting to expand, including changes on the weekends. This comes as a direct result from the one-half cent sales tax increase that was voted on in the Fall of 2016.
Starting Aug. 6, GoRaleigh will:
- Increase Sunday service to Saturday levels, with the exception of no departures after 11 p.m. on Sundays.
- Increase frequency on Route 7, which runs along South Saunders Street, to every 15 minutes Monday through Friday.
- Add Sunday service to Route 3 along Glascock Street, Route 10 along Longview and Route 15L to Trawick Road. Route 31 to New Hope Commons will drop Sunday service, however.
GoTriangle improvements include:
- Increasing frequency on Route 100 between the GoRaleigh Station and the Regional Transit Center (RTC) in Durham to every 30 minutes Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. and starting at 6:40 a.m. Saturday. Route 100 stops at N.C. State University and RDU before continuing to the RTC, where riders can catch a GoTriangle Route 700 bus to Durham or a Route 800 bus to Chapel Hill.
- Adding midday trips, Saturday trips and new night and Sunday service between Raleigh and Cary on Route 300.
