NCDOT's Public Transportation Division was created in 1974 by the N.C. General Assembly to foster the development of intercity, urban and rural (now referred to as "community") public transportation in North Carolina.

Urban and intercity buses are easily recognizable, but many citizens are unaware that public transportation services are available in most of the state’s rural areas, as well. For more information on these transportation systems, click here.
North Carolina's 99 public transportation systems serve more than 77 million passengers each year in urban and rural areas of the state. Additionally, Charlotte’s light rail system now serves more than four million passengers annually.

Economical and environmentally friendly public transportation is here to serve, connecting people and places in North Carolina.
