Fayetteville Area System of Transit (FAST) is the City of Fayetteville's public transportation system. FAST operates a fleet of 27 fixed-route buses on 18 routes to provide service Monday through Friday from 5:30 AM to 10:30 PM, Saturday from 7:30 AM to 10:30 PM, and on Sunday from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM. In addition, 18 FASTTRAC! vehicles provide paratransit service to customers with disabilities that are unable to use the fixed-route system.
FAST began in 1976 when the City of Fayetteville assumed operations from a private transportation system operated by the Cape Fear Transit Bus Company. Cape Fear Transit provided service in Fayetteville, as well as Little Rockfish in Hope Mills. It operated seven days a week, from 5:30 AM to midnight, with a fleet size of 23 buses and 20 bus operators.
Today, the services provided are more efficient, with FAST completing close to 1.6 million passenger trips annually. As a result, citizens of Fayetteville have better access to jobs, medical facilities, shopping and recreation opportunities. FAST provides a critical link to economic development and a better quality of life in Fayetteville. One thing that has not changed is FAST's mission and commitment to providing safe and affordable transportation services to more than 6,000 daily passengers.
