RTA Priority: Progress the implementation of the Wake Transit plan

The Wake Transit referendum gained voter approval in November 2016 to implement the $2.1 billion, 10-year Wake Transit plan.

Current Efforts

RTA is engaged in the acceleration of the Wake Transit plan. The regional business community is focused on the experience and perception of the new enhanced transit system including considerations for propulsion technologies, dedicated lanes, and stop/station investments.

Recent Successes

  • RTA led communications strategy and media outreach for the successful Wake Transit referendum campaign
  • RTA spearheaded the push for a scalable, bus rapid transit-based approach for Wake County which became the foundation of the approved, bipartisan Wake County transit plan
