The 2018 Adopted Wake Transit Work Plan allocates the funds expected to be received from July 2017 through June 2018. This will be the first full year of tax collection.
The work plan focuses on increasing regional bus connections, increasing weekend and evening local bus service and supporting the Wake TRACS system.
The work plan includes services that can be implemented without additional bus purchases. Future bus service improvements will be made each year as funding and supporting items such as new buses become available.
The work plan outlines planning efforts and studies that will bring new bus service and facilities, bus rapid transit corridors and the commuter rail corridor from a vision to a reality.
Capital costs associated with the work plan are divided between four categories: capital planning, vehicles, bus infrastructure and reserve for future projects.
