How It Works


Workgroups are created, as needed, to support a specific task or implementation element of the Wake Transit Plan. Workgroups complete assigned tasks and present recommendations to the lead agency or subcommittee that created the group.

TPAC Subcommittees are designated by the Transit Planning Advisory Committee (TPAC) to complete tasks in a particular topic area. There are two active subcommittees: Program Development and Community Engagement. Subcommittees finalize draft materials from the lead agencies and workgroups. They then vote on whether to send items to the TPAC for further consideration.

Lead Agencies were established by the Transit Governance Interlocal Agreement (ILA). The Wake Transit lead agencies are CapitalArea Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) and GoTriangle. Staff members from each agency are responsible for completing, leading, and managing the planning and implementation tasks of the Wake Transit program. Their work is presented to the appropriate TPAC subcommittee for review.

The TPAC is responsible for ensuring that the plans, policies, activities, and other aspects of Wake Transit implementation and planning are in-line with the ILA and other applicable authorities. The TPAC finalizes draft materials and makes recommendations to the governing boards to approve, adopt, or otherwise act on completed program tasks.

The Wake Transit Governing Boards are the CAMPO Executive Board and the GoTriangle Board of Trustees. Adoption of program plans, policies, procedures, as well as updates and amendments of them, are decisions of the governing boards.
