Expect Transit Delays

Please be patient as intersections and bridge closures that go over railroad tracks affect Transit routes: Meadowbrook, Oakwood, Ravenwood, Rocky Mount East, Hillsdale and Battleboro / Goldrock. Transit personnel will do their best to keep these transit routes on schedule as much as possible.

Face Masks Now Required on Transit

Per the governor's updated executive order, wearing a mask on transit vehicles is now required. Up until this order, passengers were encouraged to wear masks, but may have been refused transportation if not wearing a mask. This updated order requires Tar River Transit to refuse transport to any passengers without masks covering their nose and mouth.

Catch a Ride and Go Green!

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)
