Full Release

Cary, NC – The Town of Cary invites citizens to attend one of three public meetings to provide feedback on proposed service changes to GoCary routes. Citizens are invited to drop in any time from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. October 17 at Jordan Hall, 908 N. Harrison Ave.; 7 to 9 a.m. October 18 at the Cary Depot, 211 N. Academy St.; or 4 to 6 p.m. October 18 at Cary Towne Center, 1105 Walnut St., in Space 3321 near the former Sears location.

The proposed changes include:

  • Providing more direct service between Crossroads Plaza and other GoCary routes via Route 1 and removing Route 2 from service;
  • Streamlining and straightening Routes 3, 4 and 5 to provide more direct service and improve reliability;
  • Providing more direct service from Downtown Cary to Cary Towne Center, with new service along Walnut Street via Route 6;
  • Adding a new route along Weston Parkway, Chapel Hill Road, Park West Village, Cary Parkway and James Jackson Avenue.

These proposed changes, which can be reviewed online at www.GoCary.org, are part of the first phase of the Wake Transit Bus Plan through 2024. Citizens previously had opportunities to provide feedback on these changes in spring and late summer of this year. New service improvements have already begun as part of the Wake Transit Bus Plan, such as more frequent weekday service and new Sunday service.
