Starting July 1, 2021, Tar River Transit will re-start charging transit fares for both Fixed Route and Para-Transit programs. These programs and fares include the following:Fixed Route
Starting Monday, March 8, 2021, State highway crews will close the intersection of West Raleigh Boulevard and South Franklin Street in Rocky Mount to make permanent repairs to the storm drainage system. The closure will begin about 7 a.m. which is also U.S. 301 Business. The project will be completed by March 19, 2021, weather permitting.
This project will also close the bridge at this intersection which travels over the train tracks into the Eastern section of Rocky Mount. The bridge closure will affect certain Transit routes due to Tar River Transit's use of the bridge if there are trains on the railroad tracks. The Transit routes that will be affected are Meadowbrook, Oakwood, Ravenwood, Rocky Mount East, Hillsdale and Battleboro/Goldrock. Because of the bridge closure, these routes will have no choice but to wait on trains utilizing the railroad tracks which will result in delays. We ask that Transit passengers be patient during these delays and Transit personnel will do their best to keep these Transit routes on schedule as much as possible. Thank you.
