To thin the standing-room crowds that have been packing its popular intercity express buses, Triangle Transit is adding more weekday service for its Chapel Hill-Raleigh and Durham-Raleigh routes.
- Express 500 (Chapel Hill to Raleigh) for people who commute to Raleigh adds a trip leaving downtown Chapel Hill at 6:30 a.m., and add a return leaving downtown Raleigh at 5:30 p.m. Raleigh afternoon departure times for two other trips will be changed by a few minutes.
- Express 550 (Raleigh to Chapel Hill) for people who commute to Chapel Hill adds a downtown Raleigh departure at 7:30 a.m. and a downtown Chapel Hill return at 4:15 p.m.
- Express 600 (Durham to Raleigh) for people who commute to Raleigh adds a downtown Durham departure at 7:37 a.m. and a downtown Raleigh return at 4:45 p.m.
- Express 650 (Raleigh to Durham) for people who commute to Durham adds a downtown Raleigh departure at 6:37 a.m. and a return from Duke Hospital at 3:45 p.m.
