The Staff Working Groups support the implementation of the 2017 County Transit Plans for Durham and Orange. The group, known by their shared acronym SWG, is composed of technical staff and stakeholders of the counties and the Triangle region. Each county has different priorities, reflected in their Transit Plan Goals. Durham and Orange share many transit services, and many residents of one county work in the other. The SWG works on the transit needs of now, addressing rising costs, new service areas, and improving the access to bus stops, park and rides, and other emerging needs as the counties grow.

The group reviews the annual work plan and budget, consider mid-range project programming and financial model updates, and develops project-level agreements. The Staff Working Group(SWG) exists for each county, therefore there is an Orange SWG and a Durham SWG. The three voting members are the County, the MPO, and GoTriangle. Because of shared interest and two common voting members, they usually meet jointly. The SWG Administrator is staff person of the DCHC MPO.

SWG meetings are public. See Calendar and Meeting sections for more information.
