Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is coming to the region. In October, will be three public meetings on Bus Rapid Transit (BRT). You are invited to attend these public meetings and provide feedback. We will explore equity and affordability around transit stations; growth around transit stations; and BRT corridor design for New Bern Avenue.

GoRaleigh passes will be provided to all attendees. Children are welcome and there will be an activity table set up for their entertainment.

  • Equitable Development around Transit: Equity and Affordability
    How do we ensure the benefits of BRT are shared broadly? What is the best way to address affordability near transit stations? We’ll explore these topics at this workshop.

    Date: Saturday, Oct. 12, 10 a.m. - noon
    Location: Southeast YMCA
    GoRaleigh bus routes 5 and 17

  • Equitable Development around Transit: Growing around Transit
    Growing around transit can provide more housing and bring environmental benefits. This workshop explores different scenarios and what they would mean for the city’s future.

    Date: Saturday, Oct. 26, 10 a.m. - noon
    Location: Martin Street Baptist Church, 1001 E Martin St, Raleigh, NC 27601

  • Wake BRT: New Bern Avenue Design Phase
