Students and University staff lost
access to approximately 500 parking
spaces on streets near campus when a
Chapel Hill ordinance went into effect
In addition to the off-campus spaces
lost, University officials report 270
spaces lost in on-campus lots this year
due to construction projects and
The town ordinance affects spaces on
41 streets where students, staff and
townspeople parked and walked to
campus or work. Town officials could
not say what percentage of the spaces
were used by students and staff to avoid
buying campus permits.
Many of the streets affected are
narrow avenues in residential sections.
The ordinance was enacted after
residents petitioned the Board of
Aldermen to ban parking in certain
Transit system begins year
with new Carrboro route,
cuts in peak-hour service
By MIKE WADE
The Carrboro bus route has attracted high
ridership and praises from local officials
since it began operations Monday.
"It's had a few more riders each day," said
Bob Godding, head of the Chapel Hill
Transportation Department. "We're quite
happy about it."
Student Government (SG)
Transportation Director Paul Arne also was
pleased with the new route's ridership. "I'm
very happy," he said. "I think it will serve a
real need out there."
Arne said the new route would help
alleviate the parking problem on campus by
encouraging Carrboro apartment dwellers
to take the bus rather than drive to campus
Another official satisfied with the
response to the new route is Carrboro Mayor
Ruth West. "I've been watching it and there
seems to be quite a few riders. We're quite
The route runs near most Carrboro
apartment complexes and by the UNC
Medical Center via Cameron Street. The
buses begin their routes at 6:55 a.m. and run
until 6: 10 p.m. Headways (intervals between
buses at each stop) are 15 to 20 minutes
during peak ridership hours. . ,
Godding said the service possibly could be
expanded if ridership demand is sufficient.

Officer Ben Callahan of the Chapel H ill
Police Department. He estimated that
90 per cent of those were towed from the

Before the ordinance went into effect,
approximately 20 cars per week were
towed from town streets, Callahan
said. Red-and-white signs have been
erected on restricted streets. Jean Boyles
of the Chapel Hill Police Department
said tow signs affect theentire side of the
street where they are placed.

. .Other than the new route, no significant
changes in bus service during rush hours lor
this year have been made. Arne said.
"The peak headways are essentially the
same." he said. He added that minor
modifications will slightly improve service
on the F and N routes.
However, changes in the length of peak
hour periods have been reduced from four to
three hours and the E-Z rider service for the
elderly and the handicapped has also been
cut slightly. The reductions resulted from the
financial difficulties encountered by the
system last year.
Peak headways on all routes range from .
20 to 40 minutes. In a letter to the Chapel
Hill Transportation Board last May. Arne
and Student Body President Bill Moss had
urged the board to recommend a service level

"I'm hangin' in there." Jennings said betore entering the
magistrate's courtroom. He was attired in jeans, denim vest, blue
shirt, gold necklace and black boots.
The arrests stemmed from a DEA investigation here and in New
York. Agents said a package was received by World Courier Inc. in
New York and was to be sent to Jennings in Nashville. The night
manager of the delivery service opened the package and discovered
some white powder.
The night manager, Danny Byriter, contacted DEA and a field test
of the powder revealed that it was cocaine, agent Bill Rosenburger
The package was marked "personal: Attention Waylon Jennings."
The package, less the 22 grams of cocaine removed by the DEA,
was sent to Nashville where it was picked up by Ms. Evans at the
airport, agents said.
