Governor Roy Cooper tells North Carolinians to making final preparations for Hurricane Florence during a press briefing Wednesday afternoon, Sept. 12, 2018.

Public bus service in the Triangle will end at 5 p.m. Thursday in anticipation of Hurricane Florence’s arrival.

GoRaleigh and GoCary plan to offer regular service on Thursday, while GoTriangle and GoDurham buses will run on a less-frequent Sunday schedule. That means GoTriangle’s express routes will not run.

All four systems will cease operations at 5 p.m. Thursday and don’t plan to run any buses on Friday.

Chapel Hill Transit will be closed all day Thursday and Friday.

It’s not clear when bus service will resume. Each transit agency will determine when it thinks it’s safe to get its buses back on the road and will post that information on its website.

Riders can also call the GoTransit Regional Information Center at 919-485-7433.
