DURHAM — Hundreds of daily commuter trips are changing today as Triangle Transit opens its new Regional Transit Center off Slater Road in the Imperial Center (map), just east of Research Triangle Park.
This is the new transfer point for eight regional bus routes and five shuttles. It replaces the station off Davis Drive in RTP where Triangle commuters have changed buses since the 1990s.
Triangle Transit’s regional center has a park-and-ride lot, waiting room, ticket and information counter, rest rooms and bike racks. It has three bikes available for loan to registered members of the Blue Urban Bikes program ($10 annual fee).
The new transfer point is closer to Raleigh-Durham International Airport, and it means a shorter bus route for RTP workers who live in Wake County. Commuters from Chapel Hill will have longer bus rides to RTP.
New routes and schedules are online, and information is available by phone at 485-RIDE.
