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.
As the county introduces projects over the 10 years of the Wake Transit Plan, the public will get many opportunities to weigh in. In the spring, planners showed you what the bus network could look like through 2027, with the first phase being finished in 2024. Based on your feedback, those plans were enhanced to include improved service in Southwest Raleigh, a new express route along Interstate 540 in North Raleigh, quicker additions to other express routes and quicker enhancements to bus stops and park-and-ride options.
