The Chapel Hill Transit service area is continuing to grow and how people get around is changing. Building on past planning work, Chapel Hill Transit is conducting a Short-Range Transit Plan (SRTP) that will service as a roadmap for the next 10 years and position the system for continued future success. This plan is being developed in coordination with similar short range transit planning efforts being undertaken by Orange Public Transportation and GoTriangle.

What can Chapel Hill Transit do to better meet your transit needs?

  • More frequent service
  • Service in new areas
  • Service at earlier and/or later times
  • More service on weekends
  • More service to/from areas outside of Chapel Hill
  • Faster connections
  • Enhanced bus stop amenities
