Raleigh BRT: Equitable Development Around Transit

Raleigh and Wake County are planning a future with greater freedom and choice of mobility than ever before, with bus rapid transit (BRT) lines extending from downtown in each direction. BRT works by using several tools to speed buses, including providing them with their own travel lanes, giving them priority at traffic signals, and by running buses much more frequently.

Maximizing the benefit of BRT also means thinking about the areas near stations. This quick survey asks a few basic questions about this topic.

1. Raleigh is experiencing growth and change. Existing residents are electing to stay here for the opportunity and quality of life while new residents are moving here for the same reasons. How important is it that new growth take place near transit?
