NCTIES Conference 2017

Getting Around Raleigh

After a full day of Connecting and Engaging, we invite you to explore downtown Raleigh. You best bet is to leave your car parked and hop on the eco-friendly buses on the R-Line. The R-line is Raleigh's free circulator service that connects you to restaurants, shopping, and entertainment venues.
