Transylvania transportation is moving into a new era with a new fixed route service. Transylvania County Planning and Community Development Department is announcing a new fixed route service along with a new name and logo for all county transportation services called TIM, Transylvania in Motion.
Starting immediately, the public will have access to this new, affordable fixed route service that will connect Brevard, Rosman, and Pisgah Forest. Riders will be able to board at any one of the twenty-seven (27) stops. The route will travel along a path from Brevard to Pisgah Forest eight times a day stopping at each designated stop every hour, except for the three (3) trips a day to Rosman at 6:30 a.m., 11:00 a.m., and 4:00 p.m. each day, Monday through Friday.
“Transportation is a need that our citizens have identified, and we are thrilled to be able to deliver the new fixed route service to meet that need. Our Transportation Planner, April Alm and Planning and Community Development staff have worked diligently over the last two years to be able to launch this service and expand our options to meet citizen demand. The TIM will be a valuable support to many in our community,” Board of Commission Chairman Jason Chappell said.
Van stops will be marked with a sign incorporating Transportation’s new name and logo as well as the van that is providing the service
Access to the service will be provided to the public at $1.00 per stop with options to buy a book of 20 tickets for $15.00 and an unlimited monthly pass for $30.00. All purchases can be made directly with the van drivers, or at the Planning and Community Development Office.
A ribbon cutting for the TIM is scheduled for February 26 at 2 PM in front of the Transylvania County Elections office on East Morgan Street. The event will abide by social distance and mask requirements.
As the service is installed, the route will be subject to change and posted stop times could vary. The Planning and Community Development Department will keep information about route changes, service availability and more information about the ribbon cutting on its website at
