Category: Wake Transit Plan
The sales tax rate will now rise to 7. The draft Wake County Transit Plan, released in November , proposes a doubling of bus service, new commuter rail service between East Garner and Durham, and light rail service between Cary and northeast Raleigh.
We are in agreement with the Plan that the near-term focus of improved transit service in Wake County must be improved bus-based service. However, our primary finding is that the Plan, as now proposed, is not technically or financially feasible and is unreliable as the basis for decisions regarding transit investment in Wake County.
