Chapel Hill Police: Plan Safe Rides this St. Patrick’s Day Weekend

Chapel Hill Police Department is increasing patrols to keep impaired drivers off the roads during a statewide St. Patrick’s Day ‘Booze It and Lose It’ enforcement campaign, which continues through Sunday.

“If your St. Patrick’s Day celebration includes alcohol, please take time now to plan a safe ride,” Chief Celisa Lehew said. “Check in with your friends and make sure they also have a plan.”

This increased enforcement will take place during times when impaired driving is known to happen more often, including overnight hours.

In 2022, 225 people were killed or seriously injured in alcohol-related crashes on North Carolina roads during the St. Patrick’s Day enforcement campaign period. Last year, seven out of 161 alcohol-related crashes in Orange County were deadly, according to the North Carolina Department of Transportation.

“We want everyone to make it home,” Chief Lehew said.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation is leading the statewide ‘Booze It and Lose It’ campaign. Learn more here.

Vision Zero

On October 13, 2021, Chapel Hill’s Town Council adopted a Vision Zero Resolution, which states that traffic injuries and deaths are not inevitable “accidents” but preventable crashes. The Town committed to eliminating all transportation and mobility related deaths and serious injuries by 2031. This will be achieved through a comprehensive and holistic approach to designing safe roadway systems for all users no matter how they choose to move throughout the community.

Real Time Bus Tracking Returns for CHT

Long-awaited technology is convenient for CHT customers.

Town of Chapel Hill

Real-time bus tracking on Chapel Hill Transit will be ready for use Monday, March 13. After an extended period without the convenient technology, we are excited to offer it to our customers. All of Chapel Hill Transit buses have been upgraded with the necessary equipment and a testing phase has been completed.

The NextBus app can show nearby stops, routes, travel direction, and the estimated departure time of buses. The app also can link customers to walking directions, set alerts, and provide agency information. Customers can download the NextBus app from their device’s app store.

It is important to note that NextBus will not track the B, CCX, or JFX routes. Those routes continue to be operated by Carolina Livery. For customers waiting in our bus shelters, they will find the LED arrival-departure board is not operational. Those boards rely on out-dated technology that is not compatible with the newly installed bus equipment. The blue information boards will work.

Meanwhile, we are progressing with the next generation of real-time bus tracking. While the NextBus technology and app will be useful, there will be another upgrade for our customers. The GMV Synchromatics project continues and is on schedule for completion later this summer. GMV bus tracking will include the features of our current system, and customers will also benefit from improved accuracy and bus capacity information.

We thank you for your patience throughout this time and for your ridership every day.

Chapel Hill – New EV Charger Added to Eubanks Park-and-Ride Lot

Two new electric vehicle charging spaces with ADA accessibility are now available in the Eubanks Park-and-Ride Lot.

New Electric Vehicle Charging Station at Eubanks Park & RideTwo new electric vehicle charging spaces with ADA accessibility are now available in the Eubanks Park-and-Ride Lot.

“Community members can plug in their vehicle and then hop on a fare-free electric bus,” said Brian Litchfield, Director of Chapel Hill Transit.

The Eubanks Park-and-Ride lot is also illuminated by efficient LED lights and has solar-powered security cameras.

The new Level-2 charging station is part of a growing electric vehicle infrastructure in Chapel Hill. Of the more than 75 publicly available charging stations in Chapel Hill, the Town owns and maintains stations at the Homestead Aquatic Center, Town Hall, and the public level of the 140 West parking garage. There will be more than 20 charging stations in the new Rosemary Street parking deck, which will be completed in early 2024.

“Transportation creates 26% of greenhouse gas emissions in Chapel Hill, and these chargers make it easier for people to have a lower-carbon commute,” said Brennan Bouma, Sustainability Program Analyst for the Town of Chapel Hill.

The Orange County Community Climate Action Grant Program provided funding support for this new charging station.

The Eubanks Park-and-Ride lot is served by Chapel Hill Transit’s NS Route, which travels through downtown Chapel Hill to Southern Village. GoTriangle’s CRX Route, an express route between Chapel Hill and Raleigh, was temporarily suspended due to driver shortages but is scheduled to resume service at this lot on March 26. Both Chapel Hill Transit and GoTriangle are adding 100% electric, zero-emission buses to their fleets and currently provide fare-free rides. You can learn more about Chapel Hill’s Park and Ride program and purchase a parking pass for the Eubanks Lot by visiting the Chapel Hill Transit website.
