Durham County Bus and Rail Investment Plan | Print |  E-mail
The DCHC MPO Board (Transportation Advisory Committee -- TAC) approved the Durham County Bus and Rail Investment Plan.  Thank you to the approximately 130 citizens who participated in the workshops and completed the online survey. 

MPO Approves Durham Plan
The Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC), which is the policy-making board of the DCHC MPO, approved the Durham County Bus and Rail Investment Plan at their June 22nd meeting. 

Durham BOCC Approves Durham Plan
At their June 27th meeting, the Durham Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) approved the Plan and a call for a referendum on a one-half cent sales tax for public transportation.

Sales Tax Referendum
Durham County citizens voted on a referendum for a one-half cent sales tax for public transportation on November 8, 2011.  The referendum passed.

Other Information Sources
The Triangle Transit Authority (TTA) has been responsible for many of the regional rail studies including the current Alternatives Analysis.  Detailed study information be found at their project Web site called OurTransitFuture.com.

In addition, the Durham-Orange Friends of Transit (DO Transit), which is an alliance of local organizations, civic leaders and citizens who support regional transit in the Triangle, have a supporting Web site called durhamorangefriendsoftransit.org.

Background
This Web page provides information on copies of the Investment Plans.  The MPO is no longer requesting citizen comments on the Plan because the TAC has already taken action on this item.

The plan addresses the need for enhanced public transportation in the Triangle to serve the growing populations as well as provide opportunities for low to moderate income families to get to work, educational opportunities, and other cities in the region.  The financial plan outlines the variety of revenue sources necessary to support the Durham and Orange Counties Bus and Rail Transit Investment Plans, which include light rail transit, commuter rail transit and improved local and regional bus service.

The following links provide plan documents, brochures and presentations:
