City buses will no longer run on Tate Street and Walker Avenue in College Hill effective Monday August 5. Riders who want to go downtown to the Depot will be able to catch buses at new stops on Spring Garden Street. The changes are part of a system-wide revision of routes announced this week.

For years, the inbound Route 2 bus (Four Seasons Mall) has come into College Hill on Tate Street from Gate City Boulevard, making stops on Tate, including one in front of Coffeeology and Don, and then turning onto Walker Avenue. There have been multiple stops on Walker before the buses turn right onto Fulton Street and then left onto Spring Garden Street toward the Depot.

While that bus will no longer come through the neighborhood, the inbound Route 1 bus (W. Wendover Avenue) now will come down Spring Garden Street through UNCG and make stops in College Hill as it heads downtown to the Depot. Route 1’s outbound course also will run on Spring Garden, making stops in the neighborhood as it comes from downtown and continues through the UNCG campus.

Buses will continue to run on West Market Street to the Depot.

HEAT bus routes will not change.

There will be no fares charged on Monday August 5, the first day of service on the revised routes.
