The second phase of a three-part transit strategy toward the Community Transit Investment Plan
is wrapping up. This summer has been focused on engaging the public and key stakeholders in meaningful ways and will utilize their feedback in the development of a final plan.
Outreach was and is a key part of the effort to gather feedback – and we’ve had a tremendous level of participation.
The graphic to the right shows Outreach by the Numbers.
255+ Events: The kick off meetings, community meetings, elected board meetings and booths at fairs and festivals.
16,700+ Video Views: These are online views only – an important way to reach those that could not attend a meeting or event. We do not have a measure of how many people viewed the videos on cable access channels, but the videos have played on public access channels (most stations daily) in English and Spanish.
4,300+ Survey Participation: These are people who went online and provided feedback – or their paper survey has been added by the transit partners. More paper copies are still being added, including surveys from all Wake County Libraries and on our current transit routes.
To support the collection of feedback, we shared information on social media (from @WakeTransit and partner agencies). In addition, we utilized GoRaleigh exterior advertising and GoTriangle, GoRaleigh, Wolfline and C-Tran interior advertising and provided brochures and print surveys on many Wake County routes.
In the next few weeks technical staff will be reviewing the feedback that has come in so far. If you’d like to share your thoughts, we are still glad to hear from you!
