The project logo New Bern Station Area Planning Survey

The New Bern Station Area Plan will take a close look at how best to take advantage of our investment in bus rapid transit (BRT). The plan will look at what makes for great, lively, walkable places. It will also focus on ensuring that affordable housing options exist within walking distance of BRT stations.

In general, the study will include a look at what we’ve heard are important considerations in places near BRT stations:

  • Creating and retaining affordable housing units, including those affordable to very low-income households.
  • Thinking about land uses in station areas, such as places to live, work, and shop.
  • Focusing on pedestrian safety so that people walking to stations and other destinations can make that trip safely and comfortably.
  • Creating great public spaces in station areas.

We’d like your help to get us started on the right foot! Tell what else you think the study should include, what the study team should focus on, and what questions we should ask the consultant teams interviewing to conduct the study.
