View I-40 Bus on Shoulder System in a larger map
The overhead sign on eastbound I-40 this morning said something like this: I-540 7 MILES. EST TIME 40 - 50 MINS. Fortunately, it didn't take me quite that long to creep past the snow-related accidents that had clogged the freeway.
And then I noticed the big green Triangle Transit bus cruising past the rest of us, on the freeway shoulder. It was the Chapel Hill-Raleigh Express (CRX). And I wondered how this bus-on-shoulder program is working out for folks who commute by bus on I-40 each day.
So tell me. Are you one of those bus commuters -- mostly but not only I think on the CRX route -- who have used the bus-on-shoulder option in recent weeks, or this morning? I'd like to get your impressions. Please email me or call me TODAY at 919-829-4527. Don't forget to provide your complete daytime contact info, so I can call you back.
