WAKE COUNTY, NC — GoWake SmartRide NE will offer residents of Wake County on-demand rides that will cover Zebulon, Rolesville, Wendell, Riley Hill, Hopkins, Lizard Lick and Eager Hill starting this fall.

GoWake SmartRide is the result of the pilot project of Wake County Northern Microtransit Study. Microtransit is an on-demand service that allows users to request transportation services that will take them to the destination as they wish and at the time when they need it. Not only in Wake County, but Microtransit also has several services all over North Carolina such as GoRaleigh, GoTriangle, and many more.

SmartRide is available in the Uber app, so you need to download the Uber app first. You can request a ride from UberApp and catch on to the closest vehicle available in your area or you can request it by a phone call and they will tell you the nearby vehicle available. SmartRide is able to carry up to 10 passengers to the same destination.

You need to worry if your destination is outside the coverage area. The driver will take you to the nearest bus stop from your destination. All of the vehicles are disabilities friendly.

“By introducing this on-demand transit, we will enrich the lives of thousands of residents by connecting them with local medical providers, the regional human service centre, jobs, grocery stores, pharmacies and connections with commuter services,” said Matt Calabria, Wake County Board of Commissioners Chairman.

SmartRide follows the regulation and health protocols of the government. They clean their van with disinfectant, provide hand sanitiser, and clean the door handle regularly.

SmartRide will operate from Monday to Friday, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. More information and updates can be found here (wakegov.com/smartride) or you can call on 919-212-7005.
