Being a good neighbor is an important part of GoTriangle’s mission!
That’s why we’ve partnered with the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina to give back!
For every ONE PERSON who takes a survey or leaves a comment on one of our current transit projects, we can help the food bank provide 50 MEALS to Triangle residents impacted by COVID-19. Let’s work together to shape the future of transit and support our community during this difficult time! Click through the content below to learn more and participate!
Transit plans in Wake, Durham and Orange counties are moving forward and need your input! Click through the content below to learn more about all the ways you can influence the next round of improvements to the regional transit network!
Wake County Park and Ride Study
The Wake County Park and Ride Feasibility study aims to improve upon the customer service and amenities at existing park and ride locations. Following a thorough site visit for an existing conditions assessment to evaluate amenities, lot capacity, and lot utilization, a needs assessment to include current and future needs from the Wake Bus Plan: Capital Infrastructure Plan will be conducted. As part of the input into the Needs Assessment, an existing park and ride user survey will be conducted and the results will be used along with the existing conditions assessment to generate the list of needed and desired updates.
Regional Transit Center Study
The Regional Transit Center (RTC) Study aims to improve current transit service efficiency, increase the functionality of the transit center, improve passenger experience and provide opportunity for future growth. The focus of the survey is to identify necessary improvements or additional accommodations (lighting, parking, safety considerations, benches, shelters, waiting areas, etc.) at the RTC. Feedback gathered will inform potential RTC site design concepts.
FY 2021 Wake Transit Recommended Work Plan
In January, the TPAC held a public review and comment period on a draft transit work plan for fiscal year 2021 that listed $114.2 million in proposed investments. Because efforts to curb the coronavirus pandemic are expected to significantly affect many kinds of tax collections, the Wake County Transit Planning Advisory Committee is recommending that most Wake Transit improvements proposed for fiscal year 2021 be delayed until available revenues can be better assessed later this year. The TPAC used feedback from public review and comment in January and weighed a project’s time sensitivity and riders’ most pressing needs, among other criteria, to recommend what should move forward in July.
GoTriangle Proposed Service Changes
In line with the recommendations included in its Short-Range Transit Plan, GoTriangle is proposing a series of service changes in order to expand service, and improve efficiency. There are proposed service changes for routes 300, 301, 305, 310, 311 and 800 which would serve to meet the goal of reaching all Wake County Communities in the Wake Transit Plan. GoTriangle is collecting feedback on proposed service changes to be incorporated into the final changes. If approved, these changes would be implemented on Sunday, Aug. 9, 2020.
GoDurham Proposed Service Changes
Durham is proposing a series of service changes in order to expand service, and improve efficiency. There are proposed service changes for routes 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, 12 and 12B. GoDurham is collecting feedback on proposed service changes to be incorporated into the final changes, which will be voted on by the Durham City Council.
