Durham is working on a new Transit Plan. We need your input to help improve and expand public transportation in Durham.
The Transit team has drafted goals and objectives for the Transit Plan based on the Listening and Learning phase and additional past engagement such as Participatory Budgeting and resident focus groups for the annual City-County Resident Satisfaction Survey. The team has released a survey to make sure we understand residents’ public transportation priorities and that they are reflected in the Transit Plan goals and objectives.
For the Transit Plan to be successful, we must engage all Durham residents. The City of Durham and Durham County are committed to racial equity, as we work to ensure that all voices in our community are heard. Efforts to gain input from people of color and low–income communities will be prioritized throughout this planning process. Success will be measured in large part by the benefits that proposed transit improvements and projects bring to those communities. Learn more about our equitable engagement plan.
Public input is an important part of delivering transit improvements to Durham County. We would be happy to come speak with your group about the community investment. For more information or to schedule a presentation please contact:

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
