On Monday, GoTriangle Route 102, which runs peak hours between Raleigh and Garner, and GoTriangle’s Knightdale-Raleigh Express, another peak-hour-only service, will be replaced by two new all-day GoRaleigh routes.
GoRaleigh Route 20 will operate hourly from 5:30 a.m. to 12:30 a.m. weekdays between Garner and GoRaleigh Station, and GoRaleigh Route 33 New Hope-Knightdale will run hourly from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. weekdays between Knightdale and the New Hope Commons shopping center, where customers can access multiple other bus routes.
“Given that GoRaleigh Routes 20 and 33 will run all day, it’s exciting to think about all of the new options and opportunities riders will have access to GoRaleigh,” said Transportation Director Michael Moore.
In 2016, voters in Wake County approved a half-cent transit-designated sales tax to invest $2.3 billion in public transportation services between 2017 and 2027. The 10-year Wake Transit Plan seeks to connect the region, connect all Wake County communities, provide frequent and reliable urban mobility and enhance access to transit.
With input from the public, planners have since rolled out a bus plan that sets priorities for improvements. Enhancing service to Knightdale and Garner by 2020 was identified as a goal. Find out more about the Wake Transit Plan and the timing of other projects at goforwardnc.org/wake.
Also starting Monday is an entirely new GoRaleigh route that serves Rolesville. GoRaleigh Route 401 will run weekdays during peak hours, connecting Rolesville with Triangle Town Center and the Wake Tech Northern Campus. Customers will be able to connect to other routes at those two locations.
GoRaleigh is the city’s public transit bus service for all residents. GoRaleigh operates 84 buses, serving approximately 17,000 passengers per day, and covers a territory of 144 square miles.
