FAST transit study 2.0

The regional Freeway, Arterial, Street and Tactical (FAST) transit study is a follow up initiative to the original FAST study conducted in 2020-21.

The objectives of the ongoing, follow-up FAST transit study initiative are to:

  • Make our freeways and regional boulevards “transit ready”
  • Identify and accelerate regional BRT and FAST transit corridors that link RDU Airport and Research Triangle Park with downtown Raleigh, Durham, Cary, and Chapel Hill
  • Advance SMART (Systematic Management of Adaptable Roadways through Technology) freeways

NCDOT’s Integrated Mobility Division is managing the FAST study.

RTA Leadership Team member WSP is the lead study consultant.
