The Recommended Wake County Transit Plan is all about improving how you get around. It is designed to give you options for traveling that don’t include sitting in traffic, while working with your busy schedule. We want to make sure that we are developing the best possible plan for Wake County, and receiving your comments and opinions is an important part of that process.
Now is the time to make your voice heard and let us know what you think about the recommended plan. A 30-day public comment period started Monday, April 18. During this time, several public information sessions will take place throughout the county, giving residents a chance to learn more about the plan, ask questions and submit comments. Residents will also be able to learn about the draft Interlocal Agreement, which guides implementation and operations of the plan, and sets roles and responsibilities across participating agencies.

May 18 Public Hearing
On Wednesday, May 18, the boards of GoTriangle and CAMPO (the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization) will hold a public hearing beginning at 5 p.m. in Room 402 of the Raleigh Convention Center, located at 500 S. Salisbury St. in Raleigh. Residents are encouraged to attend this public hearing and provide their comments on the plan.
Both GoTriangle and CAMPO are transit plan partners, and both of their boards need to adopt the recommended plan before it can go before the Wake County Board of Commissioners.
The Wake County Board of Commissioners is expected to consider the plan in June, and also consider placing the half-cent sales tax on the November ballot for voter approval. The sales tax is a large portion of the funding stream needed to implement the plan.
