Congestion and Gridlock are Heading Our Way, Unless We Plan Now
Transportation System Failure. We know what failure in a transportation system looks like. It looks like Atlanta. We need to begin planning for our future transportation needs now to avoid more congestion and gridlock as we continue to grow.
Delayed Solutions. We have been planning for our future transportation needs for more than ten years. We have a plan and whereas it can always be improved and will continue to evolve, the most important step we can take to begin to solve our transportation problem is to get started.
Involving the Public. Wake citizens deserve a voice and a vote in the county transportation future. Orange and Durham County have moved forward in providing more transportation options for their citizens while Wake County continues to fall further and further behind.

The current transit plan will double the bus capacity and begin to provide rail connections to Garner, Raleigh, NC State, RTP, Durham and the airport all without a property tax increase.
Wake is one of the fastest growing counties in the country and as we grow, roads and traffic conditions will continue to get worse.
Even if you never use public transportation, more options mean fewer cars on the streets and highways. As others choose transit as their option, the result will be less congestion for those who choose automobile transportation.
