City of Rocky Mount's Tar River Transit is in the process of replacing its bus fleet! The transition will take place over the coming weeks. Keep your eyes out for our new blue buses on the routes.
Tar River Transit has added a new Trip Planner feature sponsored by Google Maps. Passengers can customize their route by simply entering the date and time that they hope to arrive at their destination (or depart for the trip) and the trip planner will provide 3 options, showing the amount of time and number of transfers for each option, letting you easily select the most convenient trip. The feature also includes walking directions so passengers can find out exactly how to get to the nearest transit stop.
Please be sure to use our new Bus Tracker feature presented by DoubleMap. This feature allows passengers to view the location of each route in real time. Pass the word!
Tar River Transit will not operate vehicles when there are unsafe road conditions. TRT's concern is for the safety of its riders and employees. While every effort will be made to operate vehicles according to published schedules, weather conditions may cause roads to be unsafe or impassable.
