Bus Rapid Transit is coming to our region! Planning is underway for fast, safe, and reliable bus service along four key corridors in Wake County. This page is about the Southern Corridor, connecting Raleigh and Garner.

There are two major focus areas for BRT planning in Raleigh:

  1.  Design + Construction of the BRT routes, stations, and bus lanes, and;
  2. Station Area Planning which focuses on community planning for the amenities and areas within a short walk of BRT stations.
