Over a million people are projected to make Wake and Durham counties their home over the next 25 years. The Wake County and Durham County Transit Plans give our residents, as well as visitors, another way to get around our vibrant community without spending time sitting in traffic.
Commuter Rail Transit (CRT) will use existing railroad tracks to provide comfortable passenger service that allows riders to relax or work on their way to key destinations. The line would run 37 miles from Garner to downtown Raleigh, N.C. State University, Cary, Morrisville and the Research Triangle Park continuing to Durham. The plan calls for:
- Providing up to eight trips in each direction during peak hours.
- Running one to two trips each way during midday and evening hours.
- Leveraging the bus network to connect riders with key destinations such as RDU Airport.
