Want a closer look?
Transit is a means of connecting people with opportunity. It also is a tool for improving sustainability and equity. In a growing city like Raleigh, transit helps people get around in a way that is affordable, supports walkability, and that reduces carbon emissions.
Making the most of a transit investment means thinking about how to grow around transit. The goal of this New Bern Station Area Planning project is to support healthy, affordable, and equitable neighborhoods around the city’s planned bus rapid transit (BRT) system. These neighborhoods will offer a range of places to live and work. Streets will be safe and comfortable for people walking and taking the bus.
This process is separate from the design of the New Bern BRT stations and bus lanes. It is a community planning process that will consider areas within a short walk of the BRT stations along New Bern Avenue.
