Rural General Pubic Routes

Tar River Transit has in place two Rural General Public routes that provide transportation for any citizen living in Nash and Edgecombe counties. For a fare of $4.00, residents that live in county areas such as Nashville, Spring Hope, Castalia, Middlesex, Tarboro, Pinetops, Conetoe, and Whitakers can ride to and from these areas from within the city limits of Rocky Mount. These routes are available Monday - Friday and also follow the same holiday schedule as the regular fixed route buses. The origination of each route is at the downtown bus station located at 111 Coastline Drive in Rocky Mount. Each route leaves from the downtown bus station at the following times:

8:15 a.m.
10:15 a.m.
1:15 p.m.
3:15 p.m.

Brochures for these routes are available in the downtown bus station and for download on the Rural General Public Shuttle Page. All vehicles that provide transportation for both Nash and Edgecombe counties are wheelchair accessible.
