HELPFUL TIPS

  • Submit your comment as soon as possible following an event. Our vehicles are equipped with video cameras, on both the inside and outside. Our camera system stores video anywhere between 14-30 days at a time. The sooner you submit your comment, the more likely we are able to pull video to verify your comment.
  • Be as detailed as possible. GoDurham operates throughout the city, 18 hours a day, the more specific you are, the greater chance our team has of verifying and addressing your comment.
  • Don't engage an operator. If you have an encounter with an operator or an experience at a transit facility, it's best to report it to a supervisor or customer service representative. Operators are tasked with safely operating a vehicle and running as scheduled. This task involves managing dozens of variables at a time, and an operator may not have the capacity in the moment to properly document or address your feedback.

GoDurham Transit Plan Update

GoDurham's service planning team will present a transit plan update to the Durham City Council at their budget retreat on Friday, March 8. (Updated February 13: the presentation to City Council originally scheduled for February 15, was rescheduled for March 8) Following that presentation, We hope to present the transit plan for approval at a city council meeting in March. Assuming the plan is approved, the first service changes will occur in September. Learn more about the transit plan here: https://godurhamtransit.org/transit-plan

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is GoDurham getting new buses?

A: GoDurham has a five year plan for ordering new vehicles to replace older vehicles.

Q: How often are buses cleaned?

A: GoDurham cleans every bus every day. Most buses leave the maintenance garage between 5:30 and 7 a.m. and remain in service until 7 p.m. Unfortunately, sometimes an accident may occur in the morning which results in the bus becoming dirty. GoDurham operators do their best to spot clean their vehicle and if a major mess is found, our maintenance team makes every effort to switch the vehicle and address the issue. This is one of the reasons why no food or drink other than water is allowed on GoDurham vehicles.
