Capital Area Transit (CAT)

  • Capital Area Transit Fare Increase Information

    Capital Area Transit (CAT) has worked to keep bus fares constant for the past 8-9 years. During that time, costs to operate bus services have risen due to inflation, and customer fares have not kept pace. To close this growing gap, the Raleigh Transit Authority (RTA) has approved a fare increase for Capital Area Transit.

    The increase will be implemented in two phases, the first on October 1, 2014 and then the second increase in Fall 2016. These increases will allow CAT to keep pace with inflation and continue to make improvements to bus services and facilities.

    A Fare Equity Analysis has been prepared under federal guidelines for implementing Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that reviews how the proposed transit fare changes may affect minority and low-income populations. The Raleigh Transit Authority will determine an effective date at their July/August meeting. Details of the fare increases are listed below.

    FARE TYPE CURRENT 2014 2016
    Cash Fare $1.00 $1.25 $1.50
    Day Pass $2.00 $2.50 $3.00
    7- Day Pass* N/A $12.00 $14.50
    31- Day Pass $36.00 $45.00 $54.00
    Local Paratransit Services $2.00 $2.50 $3.00
    $25 Stored Value Card $20.00 $20.00 $20.00

    *7- Day Pass to replace the 5-Day Pass.

Durham Area Transit Authority (DATA)

  • DATA Route 3 getting extra capacity beginning July 12

    In an effort to reduce overcrowding on DATA Route 3 at certain times of the day, extra capacity will be provided by adding another bus, effective Saturday, July 12, 2014.

    This extra bus, also referred to as a “tripper”, will operate Mon-Sat from Durham Station to Walmart at Glenview Station from 8pm-9:26pm. On Sundays and holidays, the extra bus will come into service inbound to Durham Station at the Village at 12:42pm and continue for the rest of the day. The extra bus will operate the entire Route 3 and serve every bus stop that the Route 3 does. This extra bus will pick and drop off at the same bay at Durham Station.

    If you are waiting for the Route 3 at the scheduled time, and the bus arrives with a head sign that says FULL BUS, wait for the next one which should not be far behind. You will also be able to see this tripper when using the GoLive real-time information app.

    Questions may be directed to the GoTriangle Regional Information Center at 919-485-RIDE (7433).
