We want to thank our bus operators, maintenance crews, supervisors and staff who have spent the last couple of days trying to provide or restore bus service. It has been extremely challenging for all and we appreciate their dedication. And of course, a big thank you to all of our customers for their patience and understanding during this winter storm. 

 

 

Chapel Hill Transit Service Update for Friday, February 27, 2015 (9:30 a.m. update)   

 

Due to road conditions (patchy to solid black ice in areas) especially on secondary streets, sidewalk conditions, park and ride conditions and the late start planned for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill Transit will begin service at 10:00 a.m. on all routes except the following:

  • CCX
  • DX
  • HS
  • PX
  • 420
  • Senior Shuttle

Route on Detour:

  • T: not serving East Chapel Hill High School

If you must travel, dress warmly and expect delays. Road conditions affect all traffic, so buses will also be operating at slower than normal speeds tomorrow morning and all routes in service will experience delays. They likely won't be on schedule, but buses should still arrive at regular intervals. We apologize for the inconvenience, but safety is our highest priority. Chapel Hill Transit encourages customers to be extra cautious when traveling to and from bus stops and when stepping on and off vehicles as area sidewalks and roadways remain slippery.

EZ Rider service will likely begin no earlier than 10:00 a.m. due to road conditions in neighborhoods. Customers may experience delays as road conditions dictate the ability of operators to maneuver their vehicles on many area side streets and provide door-to-door service.

In an effort to maintain safety, Chapel Hill Transit will continue to monitor road conditions and reevaluate routes for bus service throughout the day.
