Request for Proposals: 
Fayetteville-Raleigh Passenger Rail Study

Proposals Due on May 24, 2019 at 11:00 a.m.

The Capital Area MPO is seeking a qualified consulting firm or individual to conduct a rail feasibility study to examine the viability of passenger rail service between the cities of Fayetteville and Raleigh, North Carolina through travel market demand across various trip types; the viability of using one of the two existing freight rail corridors; and general analysis of economic feasibility of providing passenger rail between these cities. Many of the rail corridors in the region have been studied in the last several years to identify a variety of safety and capacity improvements for both freight and passenger rail. As the region continues to grow the need to maximize the use of transportation corridors continues to expand.

This study will be conducted, in partnership with the Fayetteville Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (FAMPO), through fiscal year 2020 and will conclude by June 30, 2020. The Notice to Proceed is anticipated to be issued by July 8, 2019.

Funding Partners

The funding partners for this project are the Capital Area MPO and the Fayetteville Area MPO. Representatives from these partner agencies, along with NCDOT Rail and Planning Branch Divisions, Cumberland County, Wake County, Harnett County, Johnston County, Mid-Carolina RPO and Upper Coastal RPO, will form the Technical Steering Committee that will help guide the study.
