Orange County Bus and Rail Investment Plan | Print |  E-mail
The DCHC MPO approved the Orange County Bus and Rail Investment Plan on October 10, 2012.

Background
This Web page provides information on the Orange County Bus and Rail Investment Plan. 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 Orange County Bus and Rail Transit Investment Plan, which includes light rail transit, bus rapid transit, an intercity rail station in Hillsborough, and improved local and regional bus service.
