The Wolfline is an area bus service serving the students, staff, faculty, and general public on and around North Carolina State University's campus in Raleigh, North Carolina. The Wolfline is operated by First Transit, under contract with NC State's Transportation department. The Wolfline was the first mass transit organization in the state to exclusively use 'clean' diesel engines.[1] Wolfline access is unrestricted to the public and is a zero-fare service.[2] The preceding contractor was Veolia Transportation.

Currently, the Wolfline operates 12 routes on and between Main, Centennial, and the Veterinary School campuses. The Wolfprowl route has been added to the 12 campus-area routes as a continuously running shuttle to Downtown Raleigh during Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. These routes often coincide with Capital Area Transit and Triangle Transit Authority routes, facilitating movement about Raleigh by bus.

Of the 12 campus-area routes, 11 are daytime routes, and one is a "Werewolf" nighttime route. Over the summer, regular service is roughly cut in half. During student breaks, the Wolfline runs limited service routes, focused on moving faculty and staff around. The Wolfline does not run on federal holidays.

A popular myth among students claims that if a student is hit by a Wolfline bus, then he or she no longer has to pay tuition. This myth is, presumably, false.
