Transit Investment Plans

PA members who wish to provide input or comments regarding the future of public transit in the area are encouraged to attend one of the upcoming meetings listed below. This flyer describes the investment plan and the need for transit options. This presentation describes the need further, and for those of you who want even more information, a good read is the draft investment plan. We especially encourage attendance at the upcoming BOCC meetings on June 13th and June 27th.


The Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization (DCHC MPO) is hosting open house sessions in Durham, Chapel Hill, and Hillsborough where residents can provide input on the financial plan for the Durham and Orange Counties Bus and Rail Transit Investment Plans.


The plans address the need for enhanced public transportation in the Triangle to serve the growing populations as well as provide opportunities for low to moderate income families to get to work, educational opportunities, and other cities in the region.  The financial plans outline the variety of revenue sources necessary to support the Durham and Orange Counties Bus and Rail Transit Investment Plans, which include light rail, commuter rail and improved local and regional bus service.

·   June 16, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. – Orange County Library, 137 W. Margaret Ln., Hillsborough


The Durham Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) will host a public hearing during its meeting on June 13 at 7 p.m. in the Commissioners’ Chambers, 200 E. Main Street, Durham.

The public is invited to provide comments on the plan at this meeting.
