Your time to weigh in
Each year, a work group with representatives from Durham County, GoTriangle and the Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization puts together a work program for transit service and infrastructure improvements that will be funded in the next fiscal year (July-June).
The draft FY22 Durham County Transit Work Program is now available for a 21-day public review and comment period through April 30. The work group will collect and review comments before the work program’s adoption in June.
The draft FY22 work program operates under the 2017 Durham Transit Plan. A new Durham Transit Plan is expected to be adopted in late 2021.
Highlights of the draft FY22 work program include:
- Continuing all service improvements.
- Increasing bus stop improvements from 50 to 75 per year.
- Improving sidewalks along Chapel Hill Road, Holloway Street and Fayetteville Street over the next two years.

Get the latest information on the Wake-Durham commuter rail project
Early studies needed to understand whether the commuter rail project that Wake and Durham counties have included in their transit plans would be feasible show that two route scenarios of the eight studied likely would qualify for the federal funding needed to complete the project.
Information about the studies is being presented to governmental bodies in public board meetings throughout February and is available here. To give the public an opportunity to ask questions about these preliminary results, an informational open house has been scheduled:
- WHEN: Saturday, Feb. 22, 9 to 11 a.m.
- WHERE: Durham County Health and Human Services Building, 414 E. Main St., Durham, NC
