Chapel Hill Transit (CHT) will implement several route detours on Saturday, Dec. 10, due to the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Holiday parade. The parade will begin on E. Franklin Street at the Morehead Planetarium, traveling west, and ending at Carrboro Town Hall on Main Street.

The following Saturday routes will be detoured/delayed as a result of the parade:

CHT will make every attempt to maintain schedules but is advising customers to expect delays and to allow extra travel time due to the parade. While CHT will attempt to operate normal printed schedules on all routes, delays may occur. Customers should plan to travel earlier than 10 a.m. and after noon to avoid parade traffic.
