Recommended FY 2020 Wake Transit Work Plan
At its April 23, 2019, regular meeting, the TPAC took action to recommend the FY 2020 Wake Transit Work Plan to the CAMPO Executive Board and GoTriangle Board of Trustees.
Public hearings will be held before the CAMPO Executive Board meeting June 19 and the GoTriangle Board of Trustees meeting June 26 before the boards consider adoption of the plan. A draft of the TPAC-recommended FY 2020 Wake Transit Work Plan is available for review here.
Public input is an important part of delivering the voter-approved 10-year transit plan for Wake County. We would be happy to come speak with your group about the community investment in Wake Transit. For more information or to schedule a presentation please contact:
Previous Community Engagement Tools
Because Wake County voters said yes to a community investment in transit in 2016, more frequent routes, longer service hours and improved bus stops already have made life easier and opportunities more accessible for many of our neighbors. Coming over the next year, among many improvements are more trips on GoTriangle’s popular Raleigh-Durham express route, a high-frequency GoRaleigh route along Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and a GoCary route servicing Weston Parkway. See a video and a PowerPoint presentation about the progress of the Wake Transit Plan.
Following the community outreach efforts in the summer and fall of 2018, GoTriangle reviewed the comments that were submitted and compiled a list of answers to the most commonly asked questions.
