The recommended Durham County Transit Plan has been released. Let Us Know What You Think!
Over the past two years, a new transit plan has been put together that will improve our local and regional bus systems, as well as expand paratransit service, start new initiatives like GoDurham Connect, and provide funding for future high-speed regional connections. We are now seeking public feedback on the recommendations in this new Durham County Transit Plan before it is presented for adoption.
The Durham County Transit Plan is an investment plan for the public transportation (transit) system in the County. In 2011, Durham County voters approved a half-cent sales tax to fund public transit improvements in Durham. This Transit Plan update is required by State law to determine how to use the transit sales tax funds for transit expansion over the next 20 years, through 2040. The plan will decide how we invest, spend, expand, and prioritize our public transit system using sales tax and fee revenues raised in Durham County. This plan does not include all transit or transportation revenues in Durham.
Please watch the video on this web page and read through the materials that provide additional information about the new Durham Transit Plan. Then, complete the survey at the link below to provide your input. For the Durham County Transit Plan to be successful, we must engage all Durham residents. The Durham County Transit Plan adopting and partner agencies are committed to racial equity, as we work to ensure that all voices in our community are heard. Efforts to gain input from people of color and low–income communities have been, and will continue to be, prioritized throughout this planning process.
