Route Changes

PART is continuously reviewing and analyzing our system. This process includes a variety of elements including passenger feedback, on-time performance, ridership, expense, and safety. Our goal is to provide the safest, most effective, and most efficient service possible.

October 2021 Changes

The following outlines service changes that will go into effect in October 2021.

Route 5 Permanent Suspension:

PART Express Route 5 – Amtrak Connector has been suspended since April 6, 2020, due to the impacts of COVID-19. Even prior to COVID, ridership has seen significant yearly decreases.

  • Recognizing the need to provide a connection for Amtrak riders traveling between High Point and Winston-Salem, PART began promoting Route 1 – Winston-Salem Express and Route 3 – High Point Express as a link between the two cities in May 2021.
  • Effective Friday, October 1, 2021, PART will permanently suspend the Route 5 – Amtrak Connector service. Riders will continue using our Route 1 and Route 3 to make connections.

Route 1, 2, & 3 Saturday Adjustments:

Due to the permanent suspension of Route 5, PART will move funds to modify and expand Saturday service hours on Route 1 – Winston-Salem Express, Route 2 – Greensboro Express, and Route 3 – High Point Express.

Route 1, 2, & 3 will be adjusted beginning October 9, 2021, to operate from 6:45am – 9:45pm.

These adjustments will: 

  • Change the hours from 7:00am – 7:00pm to 6:45am - 9:45pm.
  • Add additional AM & PM service.
  • Continue to provide hourly service throughout the day.
  • Provide additional options for Amtrak riders from Greensboro & High Point.
