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.


Suspension of Fares

Starting on March 30, Tar River Transit will make modifications to transit service in its on-going effort to prevent the spread of communicable diseases:

  • In order to minimize interaction between vehicle operators and the public, all transit service will be "Fare Free". The public will not be required to pay for transit services.
  • No passes will be available for purchase. This includes 10, 20, and 40 ride passes, DARTS tickets, Rural General Public (RGP) tickets, RGP Shuttle cash fares and Night Shuttle fares.
  • Current users of Tar River Transit's DARTS, RGP and Night Shuttle will still be required to make appointments but the fares for each of these programs will be waived.
  • Passengers who have already purchased tickets are not required to utilize them at this time. These tickets can be used once Tar River Transit's current fare structure has returned to normal. There will be "No Refunds" issued to passengers for transit tickets that have been purchased prior to this modification.
  • The adjustment to fares will occur until further notice.
