North Carolina's new NC By Train transit pass will go in effect on March 18.
North Carolina Department of Transportation
RALEIGH, N.C. — Customers that ride North Carolina Department of Transportation’s Piedmont and Carolinian trains will now be able to use other public transit systems as part of a new "NC By Train" state-sponsored transit pass transit program.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation’s Rail Division has partnered with 11 local transit systems along the Raleigh-to-Charlotte rail corridor that allows passengers to complete their journey using existing transit options offered by towns along the route.

Starting March 18, the NC By Train transit pass will be available to passengers at no additional charge. Customers are asked to request the pass from conductors and must then present it to a representative from the partnering transit agency. The pass will be valid for one ride and one transfer only on the day of travel.

The purpose of the program is to give passengers access to the region’s public transit systems so that it helps reduce roadway congestion. Transit partners include city-operated bus agencies and other regional forms of bus transportation.
