I just read Leo’s blog post about the end of events-driven downtown. (https://dtraleigh.com/2018/08/downtown-raleighs-event-driven-days-are-now-over/) I wonder if this also means the end of the R-Line?
It was implemented to help tourists explore downtown and easily get from places like Glenwood South to Moore Square in one evening. I wonder if its purpose is on its way out, what with Bird, bike shares, and development between Glenwood South and the city center making the walk much more pleasant.
I use the R-Line every now and then, but it unpredictable so I only use it when I’m in no rush. I’d rather pay the $1.25 to take the more reliable GoRaleigh bus.
How could we re-imagine the R-Line? I recently read a comment about expanding it to Dix Park - fantastic idea! (It takes at least 30 minutes and a bus transfer to get there from my house near Cameron Village). Would love to hear others.
