Additional information

5/13/24 to 5/17/24 N5


Due to the closure of Grove Park Inn’s private drive a detour is scheduled for Route N5. Bus Stop 957 (Grove Park Inn at Sammons Building) will be missed. Estimated time of closure is from 6:00 AM, 5/13/24 to 12:00 PM, 5/17/24.

In lieu of Bus Stop 957, passengers may board/exit buses at Bus Stop 956 located on Macon Avenue near the Longchamps Condominiums.

Until Further Notice N1 & N2

213, 214, 215, 216 & 987

Due to street closures on University Heights and Edgewood Road detours continue for Routes N1 & N2. Stops 213, 214, 215, 216 & 987 are closed until further notice.  

Stop 213 – UNC Asheville at Edgewood Road
Stop 214 – UNC Asheville at Sherrill Center
Stop 215 – UNC Asheville at Governors Hall
Stop 216 – UNC Asheville at Zeis Hall
Stop 987 – UNC Asheville at Brown Hall

Please note, due to time constraints we are unable to access the campus along another route.  The N1 & N2 routes both interline with another route and a delay would cause a domino effect along these routes.  The University is currently utilizing shuttles to transport individuals around campus.  The closest bus stops to the campus, 212 & 217, located at the intersection of W.T. Weaver Boulevard and Barnard Avenue remain in service. 

5/6/24 to 5/17/24 N4

In lieu of Stop 981 passengers may board outbound buses at Stop 982 located near the corner of Montford Ave and Bulldog Dr.

Until Further Notice N/A

  • On Tuesdays after 5:00 PM, customer service may be unavailable. 
  • On Saturdays after 5:00 PM, customer service may be unavailable.
  • On Sundays & Holidays, customer service may be unavailable. 

To avoid coming to the transit station for customer service-related activities when staff is unavailable, please plan your trip outside the hours listed above and within the regularly scheduled hours of operation.
