Chapel Hill Transit to make August schedule adjustments

Chapel Hill Transit will implement schedule and route adjustments effective Monday, Aug. 15.

Chapel Hill Transit generally makes changes to its schedules in January, May and August, in response to ridership trends, changing traffic patterns and growth in the area. The changes are:

  • A Route: A-Limited morning trips will resume (7:14–9:44 a.m.). These trips operate in a loop between Hillsborough Street, Campus and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and only operate when the University is in session.
  • CM Route: Schedule will be adjusted to better match actual travel times and improve schedule performance.
  • CPX Route: Schedule will be adjusted during afternoon to better match traffic conditions.
  • HS Route: Route will be adjusted to provide increased frequency along Rogers Road and Homestead Road. Customers traveling to/from Downtown and to/from northern Chapel Hill will need to transfer at stops along Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
  • HU Route: Schedule will be adjusted during afternoon to better match traffic conditions.
  • NU Route: Weekday and weekend service will resume. The route will also be realigned to serve Hillsborough Street and will no longer serve the Franklin Street stop at the Coffee Shop.
  • T Route: Service will be adjusted in the afternoon to better match traffic conditions.   
  • U Route: Weekend service will resume.
  • The CM, HS and T route schedules will be adjusted to serve the new afternoon dismissal time for high schools.  
  • Safe Rides: Service will resume on Thursday, Aug. 18, and will operate on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings when the University is in session. 
  • EZ Rider will operate Monday-Friday from 5 a.m. to 11:17 p.m., Saturdays from 8:15 a.m. to 11:17 p.m. and Sundays from 10:38 a.m. until 11:17 p.m. (Premium Service will operate on a space-available basis from 10 a.m.–4 p.m.).

New schedules will be available on our website by Aug. 8 and printed schedules will be available on buses by Aug. 12. NextBus predictions may be impacted by the service changes for the week following Aug. 15. Please refer to printed and online schedules during this time.
