It’s hard to imagine NC State’s campus today without the presence of Wolfline buses. They are a critical part of helping students, faculty and staff get to, from and across an ever-growing campus.
But it wasn’t that long ago that there was no bus service.
A ceremony to mark the beginning of the new Wolfline bus service was held on this day in 1980. The service initially consisted of one route, which was intended to serve students who live off-campus, according to an account in Historical State, an online archive maintained by NCSU Libraries.
The Wolfline, which is open to the public, now serves an area of roughly nine square miles in and around campus, including Centennial Campus and the College of Veterinary Medicine.
