Winston-Salem Urban League Urges Bus Service Expansion

Winston-Salem Urban League Urges Bus Service Expansion

The Winston-Salem Urban League recommends City officials and the Winston-Salem Transit Authority take steps to expand bus services.

James Perry, Winston-Salem Urban League CEO remarked, “We recognize that officials worked hard on the reforms introduced in January, but so many people…employers, low-wage workers and seniors…have raised concerns. We think changes are needed.”

WSUL recommends:

  • Service every 30 minutes during peak hours on popular routes;
  • More expansive weekend service;
  • More expansive night and evening service;
  • Fewer holiday closures;
  • Better system mapping; and
  • Better marketing and rider communications.
