About BRT

BRT is proposed to come to Wake County identified through the Wake Transit Plan. BRT allows buses to move in bus-only lanes, stopping at raised platforms for easy passenger boarding.

BRT gives priority to buses on roadways and intersections through the use of bus-only lanes and traffic signal priority. BRT also includes pre-boarding fare collection, premium amenities at stations and more.

Assistive-listening devices and interpreters for Deaf and Hearing Impaired are available. If needed, please call 919-996-3100 (voice) or 919-996-3107 (TDD) at least three days in advance of the meeting date.  Spanish materials and translators will be available at both meetings.
