NC State Transportation is an integral part of the University community and regularly conducts short and long-range planning studies, operations evaluations, and serves as a partner in regional transportation planning efforts impacting campus. The department also partners with University corporate partners in the sale of parking permits and student transit fees to support the University and its programs.
The Wolfline is NC State’s own full-service transit system, which operates every day classes are in session and provides service around Raleigh, Centennial, and the Veterinary School campuses. Currently, the Wolfline operates 11 routes on and between Main, Centennial, and Veterinary campuses. These routes connect the three campuses, multiple park and ride lots, official NC State housing, and other destinations adjacent to campus. The system is open to the public and does not require any type of ID or pass to use.
Parking rates on campus are based on the annual sampling of comparable private parking rates in downtown Raleigh. These rates are intended to help balance demand with supply, and reflect the operating costs for maintaining a safe, secure, well-maintained, and sustainable transportation system.
