My husband and I fell in love with the Greensboro area last year as we were scouting relocation potential. Well, we loved all of NC that we saw, but GSO was the best.

My question is this: if we decide to live towards Thomasville, Kernersville or Burlington (otherwise a town outside of GSO), how is the bussing system in regards to GSO/UNCG?

Alternately, if we live in the outskirts/new developments of GSO, the same question re: busses in/out of UNCG?

UNCG is important as my husband wants to attend school there, so any relocation plans center around getting in and out of the UNCG area.

Thank you in advance!

I can't say for a fact, but I have heard the "metro" bus system in Greensboro leaves a lot to be desired. And I do know you will NOT find a bus system that runs in and out of Greensboro from any of the areas you mentioned.

If your husband is considering attending UNCG, and you are thinking rental, you will find a lot available near the campus in all directions. In my opinion, if you get a few miles away, the rent is much more in line with what it should be. My son has attended UNCG for 2 years, and some landlords really take advantage of students close to campus.

We live about 20 miles south of Greensboro in Randolph County; my son so far has always commuted to school. Even with gas prices, it has been much cheaper than renting close to campus.

Default Piedmont Authority for Regional Transportation (PART)

You may find what you are looking for from Welcome to PART. I know there is an express bus system which runs through among three major cities in Triad. Further, each city has its own routes running through places.

One thing I find undesirable is that you have to buy two seperate passes to commute. In my case, I was looking for a way from Greensboro to Winston-Salem. I have to pay $50 PART monthly pass AND $30 WSTA (Winston-Salem Transit Authority) monthly pass. To me, that's plain vanilla stupid. I don't know why they haven't integrated. I believe you will face the same problem if you want to commute from Kernersvill to UNCG.
