Since Wake Transit Plan implementation began, it has garnered significant community interest. Staff are regularly asked, where can I view program information?
In response to this interest, CAMPO began development of the Wake Transit Performance Tracker. After a year-long planning and development process, the site was made available as an informational, community resource in the summer of 2021.
Now staff, partners, stakeholders, and community members have the option to view Wake Transit performance information at a single, online location at any time.
There are two documents that form the foundation of the Tracker; the Wake Transit Plan and the annual Wake Transit Work Plan. These documents contribute directly to the two core components of the Tracker.
- The Interactive Project Map includes information on service and infrastructure projects that have been completed and are underway, are in the study phase, are in the development phases or are scheduled to receive funding in future years.
- The Program Performance Dashboard is a graphic-driven, program-level progress report showing how the transit investments made to date are contributing to the accomplishment of set Wake Transit Plan and other program goals and objectives.
Bus Rapid Transit is a high-capacity bus-based transit system that delivers fast and efficient service that may include dedicated lanes, busways, traffic signal priority, off-board fare collection, elevated platforms, and enhanced stations. In November of 2016, Wake County voters approved a plan for focused investment in public transportation that established the Wake County Transit Plan. The Plan includes the construction of about 20 miles of transit lanes along four Bus Rapid Transit corridors within Wake County (Wake BRT).
The Greater Triangle Commuter Rail Project was included as part of the transit plans of both Wake and Durham counties. Those transit plans have included a 37-mile commuter rail line with stops in downtown Durham, Research Triangle Park, Morrisville, Cary, NC State University, downtown Raleigh, and Garner in their transit plans. Additionally, Johnston County has committed money to evaluate extending the route to Clayton.
