About Bus Rapid Transit

Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is coming to our region! Planning is underway for fast, reliable, frequent transportation service along key corridors in Wake County and we expect service to be fully available by 2035.

In November of 2016, Wake County voters approved a plan for focused investment in public transit which puts the implementation of the Wake County Transit Plan in motion. The plan calls for building approximately 20 miles of transit lanes along four BRT corridors within Wake County.

The four corridors are:

  1. Wake BRT: New Bern Avenue
  2. Wake BRT: Southern

  1. Wake BRT: Western
  2. Wake BRT: Northern
