Route 5

Effective November 16, 2020


NC Amtrak Connector

The NC Amtrak Connector provides a link between Winston-Salem and High Point for passengers accessing the train. Due to COVID-19 Route 5 will operate using an on-demand pick-up system for passengers that pre-schedule their PART trip through Amtrak or NC by Train. 

How Does it Work?

  1. Book your train trip to/from Winston-Salem (UWS or WNS) with Amtrak/NC by Train
  2. Purchase your PART Express pass when you book your train trip  
  3. Contact PART at 336-883-7278 to schedule your PART Express ride (you’ll need your train ticket number and the date/time of your train trip)
  4. Be at your designated PART Express pick-up location at your scheduled time
  5. Make sure to have your train ticket and bus pass available to show the driver!

Note: Both the train ticket and your PART Express bus pass are purchased through the Amtrak or NC by Train website. Then you must call PART to schedule your PART Express trip.
