This state-wide award program helps our profession to be the most creative, educational and informative as we can be, using the latest technologies and resources."

FAST Bus Routes Can Get You to Segra Stadium and Woodpecker Baseball Games The Fayetteville Area System of Transit (FAST) will provide affordable, fast and convenient access to the downtown area for the City's opening day Minor League Baseball game at Segra Stadium and all games thereafter. Woodpecker fans can travel to games on five bus routes that provide direct access to downtown. FAST has made some minor adjustments for game nights to accommodate residents during this exciting time. Direct bus routes to downtown for ballgames include: Route 5 (Ramsey Street); Route 8 (Owen Drive/Bordeaux Village/Southern Avenue); Route 12 (Murchison Road/Bronco Square/University Estates); Route 14 (Ft. Bragg Road/Cross Creek Mall); and Route 16 (Bragg Boulevard/Eutaw Shopping Center/Cross Creek Mall). These will bring citizens to the new FAST Transit Center at 505 Franklin St., which is approximately two blocks from the stadium entrance. The last buses on these routes will depart from the FAST Transit Center at 10:30 p.m. on weekday nights. One-day passes provide a round-trip fare to and from the game. Passes cost $3 ($2 for youth under 18 years or $1.50 for senior adults and persons with disabilities). Children under 6 years or under 42 inches can ride FAST buses for free with a fare-paying adult. Passes can be purchased on the bus when you board or at the FAST Transit Center.
