The Craven County Board of Commissioners approved a temporary suspension of Craven Area Rural Transit System (CARTS) fares from Jan. 1, 2021 through June 30, 2021. Fares will resume July 1, 2021.

CARTS is the public transit system covering the rural counties of Craven, Jones, and Pamlico as well as the the New Bern urbanized area.

Procedures and measures have been put into place to reduce potential COVID-19 exposure while riding CARTS. These efforts are made possible due to special funding for transit systems to respond to the current pandemic.

These are unprecedented times for public transit and the suspension of fares is unprecedented for CARTS. The temporary suspension of fares will increase access to quality of life destinations such as nutritional, medical, and employment for many people.
