WSTA route changes affect service to campus
January 6th, 2017
Starting on Jan. 2, the Winston-Salem Transit Authority (WSTA) stopped picking up or delivering passengers from or to the interior of Wake Forest’s campus. The change is part of a system-wide overhaul of the WSTA route structure, as reported by the Winston-Salem Journal.
To assist those traveling to and from campus on WSTA buses, the University’s Office of Parking and Transportation is researching opportunities to diminish the impact of these changes made by the WSTA. More information about these University efforts will be shared once more details are finalized.
The University’s Office of Parking and Transportation is not associated with the WSTA, a public transportation service.
As of now, the WSTA continues to provide service to the campus vicinity, including the edges of campus. According to the WSTA, its routes are scheduled to operate on the University Parkway and Reynolda Road sides of campus.
Below is a summary of routes that will operate near campus, based on WSTA information:
Route 89 will operate on the University Parkway side of campus, with scheduled service every hour.
–Bus service from downtown toward Wake Forest will stop on University Parkway in the northbound lane across from the entrance to campus. Caution is encouraged when crossing University Parkway to reach campus.
–Bus service from Wake Forest southbound toward downtown will be located outside the University Parkway entrance to campus.
Route 88 will operate on the Reynolda Road side of campus with service scheduled every hour.
–Bus service from downtown toward Wake Forest will stop on Reynolda Road in the northbound lane, outside the Reynolda Road entrance to campus.
–Bus service from Wake Forest southbound toward downtown will be located on the southbound lane of Reynolda Road, by the BB&T University Center.
