Wake County and CAMPO introduced the plan to strengthen regional connections across county lines; connect Wake County communities to a more robust transit network; and provide frequent, reliable service to education, healthcare and employment centers.
GoTriangle Board Member Fred Day said, “We enthusiastically back the plan, an important investment in more transportation choices and better connections for our rapidly growing region.”
Through the plan, riders will see rapid bus service along major transportation corridors and commuter rail that links Garner, Raleigh, NC State University, Cary, Morrisville, the Research Triangle Park and Durham.
The Capital Area MPO unanimously approved the recommended plan on May 18. Wake County commissioners are expected to vote on June 6. If approved, voters would see a referendum on the November ballot for a one-half cent sales tax to fund transit improvements.
