New Bern Station Area Planning is a planning process that will take a look at areas within a short walk of future bus rapid transit (BRT) stations along New Bern Avenue. Topics include housing affordability and housing choice, access to jobs and support for area businesses, and the ability to safely and comfortably walk to BRT stations and other destinations. The survey takes less than five minutes, and the results will help determine key areas of focus for the project.

The survey is available in Spanish.  -- La encuesta también está disponible en español aquí.

More information about the project can be found on https://raleighnc.gov/station-area-plan-new-bern

You can also contact Project Manager Jason Hardin with any questions or comments or if you have any technical difficulties with the survey at 919-996-2756 or [email protected].
