PART Express Route Adjustments Notice

The Piedmont Authority for Regional Transportation (PART) is a unit of local government that provides public services utilizing local, state, and federal tax funds. PART strives to provide convenient, efficient, and viable transportation options that are fiscally responsible and sustainable. With 15 years of service and the benefit of ridership and demographic data available to us, PART has reviewed our entire commuter express service, and is proposing service changes to correlate the local financial support, and commuting patterns of our customers. The new route system is a result of on-board surveys, customer satisfaction surveys, and comprehensive transit planning. Over the 15 years of operating PART Express customer travel behaviors and commuting patterns have changed. The proposed Route Adjustments are designed to accommodate more services for the largest population sectors that utilize PART Express in our Region.

In areas where ridership is low PART proposes to discontinue PART Express Bus Service. PART staff is available to help you explore other commuting options like carpooling or establishing a PART Vanpool. These changes represent a significant increase in PART Express service targeting areas with existing strong ridership. The new Coble Transportation Center will be open on July 3, the PART Regional Hub will no longer be served after that date.

PART is proposing the following adjustments effective July 3, 2017:

  • Route 1: Remove Federal Bldg. stop, Add Innovation Quarter stop, Extend Service to 9:30pm – View Proposed Schedule Here
