YOUR PLAN, YOUR PRIORITIES

TAKE THE SURVEY! The coronavirus pandemic has led to lower-than-expected tax revenues and some anticipated costs of projects have increased so Wake Transit planners need to reschedule transit investments that have already been scheduled through 2027.

First, they want to know what you think. Your input today will help confirm Wake County’s transit investment priorities as we revise the plans and extend them through fiscal year 2030.

Please take a short survey.

BACKGROUND

Between 2014 and 2016, Wake County and its transit partners used public input, feedback from elected officials and community leaders and financial analysis to prepare the Wake Transit Plan. Wake County voters then approved a transit-dedicated sales tax to invest in the plan to vastly increase the community’s transit mobility options.

By 2027, the Wake Transit Plan aims to:

  1. Connect the Region
  2. Connect all Wake County Communities
  3. Offer Frequent, Reliable Urban Mobility
  4. Enhance Access to Transit

Another Wake Transit goal is to invest about two-thirds of the money in projects with high ridership and the other third in projects that connect more of the county. Ultimately, the total investment should be split evenly between expanding transit service and making service more attractive, convenient and efficient.

Although the COVID-19 pandemic has hampered the county’s ability to implement the full plan by 2027, the goals haven’t changed, and planners will use the results of this survey to help them reschedule investments through 2030 to meet the goals.

The hope is to have a final plan adopted in early 2021.
