We're hoping to move to Chapel Hill in the next few months. Wondering if the bus lines are safe and convenient for young teenagers? Would they be able to rely on them instead of us for getting to and from work and the movies etc.

Thanks for your help

I would think so; I know families who let their teenagers right on them alone, at night... although I can't say whether they limit where they can go or when, etc.

One nice thing is that you can track the buses online, so you don't need to worry that your kid is waiting at a poorly lit bus stop for a half hour waiting for a bus.

They are very safe and fairly consistent. They are geared toward the university, though, so routes in other parts of Chapel Hill tend to be a bit more sparse. To find out how convenient they'd be for you, it's probably best to study the various routes: Town of Chapel Hill : Routes & Schedules

As mentioned, the buses are very convienient for getting to work at the university during the week. Evening hours service is scaled back considerably, there's very sparse service on Saturdays and service is virtually nonexistent on sundays.
