What is Wake Transit?
Wake Transit is an investment program that was developed through an extensive, community-driven process that resulted in a long-range vision to enhance the public transportation system in Wake County.
Wake County, North Carolina has more than a million residents, and that number grows by up to 60 people per day. With more people comes increased congestion on our roadways, greater demand for alternative transportation options and a desire to enhance connections between neighboring communities.
The foundation of the program is the adopted Wake County Transit Plan, referred to as the Wake Transit Plan.
Wake Transit program implementation began in FY2018. Since then, significant progress has been made toward addressing the increasing transportation needs by investing program funds in new and enhanced transit services and by funding the purchase and construction of transit supportive infrastructure.
The service and infrastructure investments funded with Wake Transit revenues in the current planning year and projects programmed to begin in future years will continue to expand access and opportunities for riders within Wake County, throughout the Triangle Region and beyond. As our transit system grows, community members will have more opportunity to chose transit options that connect them to jobs, schools, community resources, shopping and entertainment centers.
The Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) Executive Board and the GoTriangle Board of Trustees govern the Wake Transit program with the support and guidance of the Wake County Transit Planning Advisory Committee (TPAC).
