MTD signBeginning August 24: MTD will add late evening service for Line 7, which will depart Calle Real & Turnpike at 9:30 p.m., stop at State & La Cumbre at 9:43 p.m. and arrive at the Transit Center downtown by 10:00 p.m. We hope that this new service will be helpful to students taking evening classes at the Wake Campus.
