Wake Forest adds bus service

Posted July 2, 2008

— Commuters in Wake Forest will have a new option beginning Monday. A weekday rush-hour express bus will run from Wake Forest to downtown Raleigh, and local bus service will run on a loop connecting key areas within the town.

The Wake Forest-Raleigh Express will depart nine times each weekday between 5:55 a.m. and 8:55 a.m. from a park-and-ride at White Street and Elm Avenue in Wake Forest and make stops at Triangle Town Center, the state government offices and Moore Square.

The reverse trip will operate from 4:15 p.m. to 7:15 p.m.

Full schedules for the two new routes are available on line at

    I'm sure that will be extremely helpful to all the soccer moms who need to get to the mall on weekdays. Meanwhile, the rest of us still have to brave the gridlock that is Capital Blvd.

    Too bad we don't have light rail yet so public transit commuters don't have to wait for traffic.

    Why couldn't this have been done when I lived there?
