DOT to expand bus routes on I-40 shoulder
The Bus on the Shoulder System, called BOSS, will expand into Wake County on Interstate 40 to Wade Avenue and on Wade to Blue Ridge Road.Posted — Updated
In a news conference scheduled for Friday morning, the North Carolina Department of Transportation will announce plans to expand the use of interstate shoulders by Triangle Transit buses. The Bus on the Shoulder System, called BOSS, allows buses to use the shoulder when traffic slows to less than 35 mph in order to keep to published timetables.
Triangle Transit buses have used the shoulder of Interstate 40 in Durham County for a little more than a year. DOT has deemed that pilot program a success and plans to expand the BOSS into Wake County on I-40 to Wade Avenue and on Wade to Blue Ridge Road.
