Bus on Shoulder System Study Final Documents for Review:

Bus on Shoulder System (BOSS) Study

CAMPO and GoTriangle partnered with NCDOT and DCHC MPO to conduct a regional Bus on Shoulder System Study in 2020-2021. The study was conducted with the assistance of a consulting team led by HDR, Inc.  The overall purpose was to evaluate feasibility and need for expanding BOSS operations throughout the Triangle, and outline opportunities for implementation of BOSS on appropriate roadways through upcoming projects in the Tranportation Improvement Program or other transportation projects. The study also evaluated the current NCDOT BOSS implementation manual to recommend updated procedures for deploying BOSS in other areas of the state. The study has culminated in a technical analysis of BOSS in the Triangle and an Implementation Blueprint for use in other areas of North Carolina. The study was guided by a Technical Steering Committee comprised of members from CAMPO, DCHC MPO, GoTriangle, NCDOT, NC State Highway Patrol, and the Regional Transportation Alliance.

Wake Transit Initiative

The original Wake County Transit Plan was adopted by the CAMPO Executive Board, GoTriangle Board of Trustees, and Wake County Board of Commissioners in 2016, and an update to the Wake County Transit Plan, which extended the original plan's horizon from 2027 through 2030, was adopted by the CAMPO Executive Board on April 21, 2021, and the GoTriangle Board of Trustees on April 28, 2021. The MPO incorporates the outputs of the Wake Transit program of work into the regional Metropolitan Transportation Plan.

An Interlocal Governance Agreement (ILA) designates the CAMPO Executive Board and GoTriangle Board of Trustees as the lead agencies responsible for ongoing technical and financial decisions related to Wake Transit Plan implementation. The ILA 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. The TPAC is 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.
