Greensboro has long been known as the “Gate City” due to its strategic positioning as a southeast transportation hub. The same can be said for its strong local public transportation options.
Greensboro Transit Authority (GTA), established in 1991 serves the bustling population with bus services seven days a week. Most of the 16 routes and connectors radiate from a central transfer center located at the historic J. Douglas Galyon Depot, a 1920s-era railway station refurbished in 2003 for multi-modal transportation use. A fleet of over 50 buses includes the latest diesel-electric hybrids, capable of transporting riders in environmentally-efficient comfort on less fuel. GTA also offers Higher Education Area Transit Services, an express bus service increasing mobility options for the area’s college students by connecting campuses with select destinations and the entire GTA system. In the instance that you would ever desire to leave the Gate City, the Depot offers connections with regional transportation provider PART Express, statewide service with Carolina Trailways, and national transportation service with Greyhound and Amtrak.
