Because of the upcoming shutdown of Business 40, WSTA has developed a plan to increase bus service on six current WSTA routes: 80, 85, 95, 103, 104 and 107. Additionally, WSTA will provide Park & Ride Express service for commuters on current routes: 83 & 84.

WSTA will share details on the new service at public meetings throughout the City of Winston-Salem. Get new WSTA and PART route schedules, and sign up for the new Park & Ride Express service. WSTA will offer a travel training course for anyone interested in learning how to best use WSTA/PART public transportation services.

For those who want to know more about the service increases and/or the Park & Ride Express service, attend one of the following meetings:

*Carver School Road Library – Oct. 12 – 10 a.m.-noon

*Rupert Bell Rec Center – Oct. 15 – 1-3 p.m.

*South Fork Rec Center – Oct. 17 – 4-6 p.m.

*Williams Sims Rec Center – Oct. 19 – 11 a.m.-1 p.m.

WSTA will also attend the public hearings/meetings hosted by the N.C. Department of Transportation at the Milton Rhodes Center of the Arts, 4:30-7:30 p.m., Oct. 16. The public is welcome.

About the Business 40 project

The 1.2-mile section of U.S. 421/Interstate 40 Business (Business 40) through downtown Winston-Salem, will be closed for repairs. It opened in 1958 as part of the East-West Expressway. It was the first section of interstate highway designated in North Carolina.

Because of Business 40’s age and outdated design standards, as well as increasing traffic volumes and wrecks, the N.C. Department of Transportation decided in 2006 to rebuild the section of Business 40 from west of Fourth Street to east of Church Street between Exits 6A and 4B.

The new Business 40, expected to be completed in 2020, will meet current design standards so that it can function safely and effectively for the next 50 years – the typical lifespan of an interstate highway.
