The Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization, the City of Raleigh, the Town of Cary, Wake County, the North Carolina State Wolfline and other Wake County municipalities are working together to prepare a long-term Capital Area Bus Transit Development Plan and a GoRaleigh Short Range Plan. This process started back in the early 2010s.
Wake Transit Plan
Wake County has more than a million residents, and that number grows by more than 60 people per day. With them comes congestion. The Wake Transit Plan expands access and opportunities and helps connect more people to jobs, schools, entertainment. As part of the plan, Raleigh has added express routes to Knightdale, Garner and Rolesville and is working on Bus Rapid Transit.
2040 GoRaleigh Bus Development Plan
The 2040 GoRaleigh Bus Development Plan provides a long-range capital investment and bus operating service plan to implement improvements for new and/or expanded commuter bus, as well as local and in-fill bus services through 2040.The GoRaleigh 2040 Bus Development Plan will also complement the regional rail service plan currently being evaluated by Triangle Transit. Bus services will provide high frequency transit on non-rail corridors, as well as connections to all rail stations permitting residents from all areas to easily access the regional rail system.
GoRaleigh Short Range Plan
The GoRaleigh Short Range Bus Plan consists of specific recommendations for updated service and routes through 2024. The GoRaleigh Short Range Plan focuses on improving current service and provides detailed recommendations for new, expanded and/or improved bus services.
