In addition to transit elements contained in the Metropolitan Transportation Plan and Comprehensive Transportation Plan, the MPO engages with our partner agencies to conduct regional transit planning. Most recently, a refined Wake County Transit Investment Strategy and Plan was developed. This plan involves increasing service frequency and expanding coverage and network connections across Wake County and builds upon the Wake County Transit Plan developed in 2012 and both a Wake Corridor alternatives analysis and Durham-Wake rail corridor alternatives analysis completed in 2011. The MPO will ultimately incorporate the outputs of this work into its regional Metropolitan Transportation Plan for 2045.
The Wake County Transit Plan and associated Interlocal Governance Agreement , which spells out the governance and implementation structure for the plan, were adopted by the CAMPO Executive Board May 18, 2016, the GoTriangle Board of Trustees May 25, 2016, and the Wake County Board of Commissioners June 6, 2016. The plan and agreement are available on www.waketransit.com.
The execution of the Interlocal Governance Agreement made the CAMPO Executive Board and GoTriangle Board of Trustees responsible for ongoing technical and financial decisions related to plan implementation. The execution of the Interlocal Governance Agreement also created the Wake County Transit Planning Advisory Committee (TPAC), a staff-level advisory committee comprised of agencies and local governments with jurisdiction in Wake County charged with coordinating planning and implementation aspects of the Wake County Transit Plan and serving in a structured advisory role to the CAMPO Executive Board and GoTriangle Board of Trustees.
