June 1st CHT Modifications- Chapel Hill Transit is running the weekday CM, D, G, J, NS, RU, S and U routes, GoTriangle’s 420 and EZ rider service

Chapel Hill Transit will begin running several regular routes with modified schedules. The CM, D, G, J, NS, RU, S and U routes will begin running their normal schedule until 8 p.m. when the routes will go out of service.

“Running these eight core routes provides a higher level of service, while allowing our maintenance team to keep an increased vehicle cleaning schedule,” says Jeffrey Sullivan, Chapel Hill Transit’s community outreach manager. “Our priority is to make sure riding transit is as safe as possible. We also want to provide reliable service to ensure people who depend on us are able to access work, healthcare and other essential services.”

The core routes will maintain their normal schedules, however, each route will end around 8 p.m. View the amended schedules via the links below. Trips that will not run are shown in gray.

EZ Rider will provide service from 5 a.m. until 8 p.m. Monday through Friday. Chapel Hill Transit will continue to provide six trips of GoTriangle’s route 420, connecting Hillsborough and Chapel Hill.

Buses will be limited to 10 people, while larger buses will be limited to 15 people. Tripper service will be available for some routes such as the NS and S, where we expect to see more passenger demand. Tripper service means several buses and operators will be on standby to provide additional service if a bus becomes full.

Chapel Hill Transit will continue to ask customers to board via the rear door unless a mobility issue makes it difficult for a customer to do so. Chapel Hill Transit also encourages all customers to use face coverings while on the bus.

“We are in the process of finding devices that can dispense face coverings and are working with vendors to get additional supplies in to help those who may not have access to face masks,” says Sullivan.

“We have also measured out spaces on our vehicles that allow six feet of physical distance and are placing signs to help passengers identify these seats.”

Chapel Hill Transit’s administrative offices will continue to be closed to the public. Lost and found will only be available by appointment. Call 919-969-4901 to speak with a team member.

“We know many people are eager to get back to normal,” says Sullivan. “Thank you for your patience as we begin to bring back our service safely.”
