Service Alerts

DELAY NOTICE:

Due to the bridge closure at Sunset Avenue and the US 301 bypass widening, Sunset Avenue Route (#7) is expected to experience delays.

The bridge will be closed approximately 14 months, and these delays are likely to continue throughout the duration of the construction period.

This may also delay passenger transfers to other routes.

At times, these delays will be lengthy, depending upon traffic and ridership. Tar River Transit will work diligently to get passengers to their desired locations in a timely fashion.

Did you know?

By using transit, you help the environment by reducing emissions which are a significant cause of poor air and water quality?

Transportation in the United States is responsible for 29 percent of greenhouse gas emissions. The use of public transportation reduces greenhouse gas emissions along with the emissions caused by gridlock and also saves fuel. Data demonstrate that public transportation produces significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions per passenger mile than private vehicles. (Source: Federal Transit Administration)
