A FAST vision for the TrianglePresented by Research Triangle Foundation of North Carolina
Tuesday, August 4, 2020
8 a.m. – 9 a.m.
The 2020 RTA Transportation Breakfast — presented by the Research Triangle Foundation of NC — featured a presentation and discussion with the regional business community of the draft findings from two RTA-coordinated studies on enhanced regional transit.
Breakfast attendees received preliminary findings from the RTA FAST network study — funded by RTA in concert with GoTriangle and NCDOT — to develop a Freeway And Street-based Transit (FAST) network to link our region, complement upcoming bus rapid transit investments, and connect with RDU Airport as well as future commuter rail.
Business executives and transportation leaders also received preliminary findings of an RTA study on the potential expansion of zero fare transit in our market.
An executive business panel discussion followed the transit study presentations with speakers including:
- Maeve Gardner, GlaxoSmithKline, RTA 2020 chair
- Jay Irby, First Citizens Bank, RTA regional transit chair
- Julia Wright, Dominion Energy, RTA policy chair
- Pete Marino, Smith Anderson, RTA freeways chair
- Scott Levitan, Research Triangle Foundation of NC, president and CEO
- Joe Milazzo II, RTA, executive director – moderator
