Wake County Transit Plan Updates as of February 2017

As a part of the new Wake County Transit Plan, GoCary has proposed a few service changes to benefit the public starting August 1, 2018. This is in concert with other transit providers in the County to ensure regional mobility for all.

Note: The proposed GoCary changes to extend services on Sunday (all Fixed Route and Paratransit), as well as increase midday frequencies for Routes 3, 4, 5 & 6, M-Sa will be funded by new revenues from the one-half cent sales tax approved last November by voters in Wake County. The Wake County FY 2018 (July 2017- August 2018) Draft Work Plan outlines complementary proposed improvements to the GoCary, GoRaleigh, GoTriangle, and WakeTRACS systems that can be made beginning in 2017 without needing new buses. Review and comment on the FY 2018 Draft Plan here.

The Town of Cary's C-Tran service rebranded to GoCary on October 1, 2016, and the Town rolled out improved vehicles and technologies to enhance riders' experience. The name change is part of a regional effort to create a more unified connection between the area's transit system while allowing for local system identity.

GoCary Door to Door Group Trips

What are Door to Door group trips?
Group trips (four or more passengers) provide an opportunity for registered passengers living in the same retirement community to schedule a recurring trip for destinations such as shopping (i.e. grocery or retail) or even movies within Town limits. Each requested group trip can only be scheduled one day each week and can only make the trip within Cary Town Limits (Tier I and Tier II). If interested in group trips outside Cary Town limits, contact the Senior Center at (919) 469-4081.

Inclement Weather Policy

During  inclement weather, GoCary fixed route and Door to Door services will operate based on weather reports and road conditions or high winds. When service runs in extreme conditions, it may be delayed or time schedules altered in the interest of safety. Verify service status by calling operations at (919) 481-2020. If you receive Town email alerts, you will automatically get service adjustments updates during inclement weather. In addition, fixed route riders will receive notifications on the “Transloc” App, also known as GoLive which can be downloaded for free if you have a smart phone.

There may be times when GoCary fixed route service operates when Door to Door service does not operate, since fixed routes operate primarily on major streets. If fixed routes operate during inclement weather, Tier I trips will be the only Door to Door service provided contingent on secondary road conditions. If you have a Door To Door trip scheduled and are unsure if GoCary will operate, please call 919-481-2020 after 6 a.m. the day of your trip.

Wake County Transit Plan

CTran Wake County

The Wake County Transit Strategy is partnership that includes Wake County, GoTriangle, Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO), City of Raleigh, Town of Cary, Research Triangle Foundation, NC State University and Raleigh-Durham International Airport.

In the 2016 General Election on November 9th, Wake County voters made their voices heard and approved a one-half percent local sales and use tax referendum to fund the Wake County Transit Plan.

The transit plan will help residents get where they need to go more easily. It will provide improved connections within Wake County and across the Triangle region through expanded bus service and commuter rail from Garner to Durham.
