Service Changes for CH Transit

Starting Monday, August 15th there’s going to be some changes to Chapel Hill Transit routes. I know one SmartCommuter who’s affected, are you?

After five public forums, Chapel Hill Transit announced the changes June 27th. The recommendations were made to impact as few riders as possible. All changes are available at CHT’s website (and after the jump).  Print schedules should be available on the buses about a week before.
