Fayetteville Area System of Transit (FAST) was created in 1976, when the City of Fayetteville assumed operations from a private transportation system operated by the Cape Fear Transit Bus Company, which provided services to the current service area and Little Rockfish in Hope Mills. The hours of operation were seven days a week, from 5:30 a.m. to midnight. It had a fleet size of 29 buses and 20 bus operators.

Today, the services provided are more efficient and use resources with financial integrity and improved congestion management; the City of Fayetteville expanded its services for the public and opportunities for its employees. FAST is a critical link to jobs, economic development and quality of life in Fayetteville.

Its mission commits it to providing safe and affordable transportation services to 5,000 daily passengers, with 18 daily routes operated from 5:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and from 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. on Saturday. In fiscal year 2014, FAST carried just under 1.6 million passenger trips.
