Wake County Transit Plan

In 2015. Wake County hired consultant groups Jarrett Walker and Associates and Kimley Horn to prepare a Wake County Transit Plan to guide transit development in Wake County.  As part of this plan, a 'Wake County Transit Choices Report' was created to detail transit alternatives available to Wake County and demonstrate trade-offs of each approach.  The Report is available at  Implementation of this plan is largely dependent on a future half cent sales tax referendum to be proposed by the county.

The report includes summaries of the following attributes and covers existing transit service and usage, along with:

  • Maps illustrating existing transit service by route
  • Data on existing service frequency
  • Data on existing transit ridership, including mapping of highest passenger origin and destination locations
  • Land use mapping including existing and anticipated land uses, density, major activity centers, etc.
  • Mapping of existing traffic volumes and capacity on key roadway arterials
  • County’s current performance against several peer cities
