Wake County's new transit future starts tonight at Raleigh Convention Center

Posted by on Mon, Dec 8, 2014 at 7:48 AM

Wake County, wrestled from the grip of gas-guzzling, fill-it-up-with-premium, to-hell-with-that-catalytic-converter Republican county commissioners, is launching a new vision for mass transit tonight.

The public meeting starts at 6 p.m. the Raleigh Convention Center, in Ballroom C.

If you can't make the meeting—perhaps it would take you 90 minutes and three buses to get there—you can watch the event live on cable channels 11 and 18. The event also will be streamed on raleighnc.gov and WakeTransit.com. You can also send questions to @waketransit on Twitter.

Consultants Jarrett Walker and Kimley Horn will discuss how with public input, they will identify major travel corridors for further study. There will also be information about funding and other policy decisions that will determine Wake County's transit plan.

Public input will be distilled into two options, and the finished plan will be evaluated by Wake County, Triangle Transit and the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO), which includes representatives from every municipality in Wake County. The process is estimated to take seven months.

A little background reading: The INDY's Bob Geary raised questions about Wake's transit future in his Nov. 26 column.
