January Transit Updates

Transit updates include: Chapel Hill Transit Inclement Weather Service, February Triangle Transit Route Changes.

Chapel Hill Transit Inclement Weather Service
Chapel Hill Transit (CHT) is preparing for an expected wintry mix of precipitation that is in the forecast for this season. CHT buses will follow their normal routes and schedules as long as the streets are safe for travel. If there is a significant accumulation of snow, ice or freezing rain, some routes will be put on detours (as buses may not be able to serve parts of a route that are hilly or too dangerous to drive on). To be safe, dress warmly and expect delays. Road conditions affect all traffic, so buses may experience significant delays. They likely won't be on schedule, but buses should still arrive at regular intervals.

Where to Get Service Information:
Conditions can change quickly. Before you leave, get the latest updates on weather related delays and detours:
