Coach America is happy to partner with the local Transit Agencies.
We are proud to be a partner with the N.C. Department of Transportation Public Transportation Division and thank them for supporting the goals of Intercity Travel.
The N.C. Department of Transportation recognizes the importance of providing an intercity bus route connecting communities in eastern North Carolina. In partnership with Coach America, NCDOT is able to provide locals, tourists, base personnel, etc. with a safe, comfortable, cost competitive alternative to driving between New Bern and Morehead City during the busy summer season.
Intercity bus services are fixed-route, scheduled services, that provide intercity transportation
within the state and connections to the national intercity bus system through interline agreements or through-service arrangements. The state is using a combination of state and federal Section 5311(f) funds available specifically for supporting intercity bus service to provide assistance in operating this route.
