  1. The transit possibilities for weekends and evenings seems a little weak to me because, last I checked, there are few if any routes connecting the transit systems in Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill. I live in Durham and have great service from DATA but if I want to go to an evening event at Raleigh Memorial then I have no choice except to drive.

    I think what is needed is once an hour routes connecting the transit hubs in these three Triangle area cities running till maybe 11pm.

    Purely for commuting on a 9-5 work schedule, the systems is very good.

    • Vic, thanks for the feedback. I know there was a study done recently in the Triangle on weekend and night transit service. The planners and powers that be are reviewing those results now, so changes will be coming in the future.
