Who we are

The Regional Transportation Alliance serves as the voice of the regional business community on transportation initiatives and policy across the Triangle.

The RTA business coalition counts as members more than 100 of the leading businesses in our market, 23 member chambers of commerce, along with our two metropolitan planning organizations for transportation (MPOs), our regional transit agency GoTriangle and the City of Raleigh’s transit agency GoRaleigh, as well as the Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority (RDU).

RTA has a demonstrated track record of success in accelerating regional priorities, policies, and practices in concert with key elected and transportation partners for more than 15 years.

Our approach

As a business group, we understand that resources of money, time, focus, and political capital are finite. We identify opportunities and threats to our region’s prosperity, make the business case for solutions, and then provide the focus and strength needed to get results.

While each initiative is different, we typically engage in one or more of the following tactics or strategies to advance our priorities and those of the region:

  • Unite the regional business community to provide powerful advocacy
  • Identify and promote key priorities that grow our economy
  • Align public and private sectors by building support and consensus
  • Guide effective strategy using a business approach
  • Lobby for innovative solutions that enhance regional mobility
