Wolfline Transit System

Wolfline is NC State's bus service which is tailored to student class schedules but also serves the general public fare-free. Wolfline buses operate every day classes are in session, serving all three campuses, three park & ride lots, official NC State housing, and privately-owned apartment complexes located on city streets traveled by Wolfline buses on the way to or from these areas.

No university ID, pass, or fare is required to ride! Buses are red and white and black with the Wolfline logo lettering.

Wolfline buses travel along designated routes and only stop at designated Wolfline stops; some of which are shared stops with city (GoRaleigh) and regional (GoTriangle) transit providers.

Call  919-515-WOLF or email us with your suggestions!

People with low vision or blindness are encouraged to call NC State Transportation at  919-515-3424 for assistance in utilizing Passio, which provides real-time bus locations along all Wolfline routes.
