Transit Pass

Available Now!

NC By Train is partnering with local transit systems along the Raleigh-to-Charlotte rail corridor by offering a pass to help you reach your final stop via public transportation.

Passengers aboard Piedmont and Carolinian trains may request a transit pass from conductors while on board and present it when getting on the transit partner’s bus. The pass is valid for one ride and one transfer only on the day of travel.

NC By Train is partnered with 11 local transit systems along the Raleigh-to-Charlotte rail corridor to offer passengers aboard Piedmont trains a free pass to help them reach their final destination through public transportation.

To get a pass, rail passengers just need to request it from conductors while on board and present it when boarding the transit partner’s bus. Use of the pass is only good on the passenger’s day of travel. The pass is a companion to the TransLoc smartphone app which can assist commuters in planning their commutes to and from the train station using public transportation. The app can be downloaded from Apple iTunes or Google Play.
