Transit in the Triangle Region

The cities of Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill comprise the Triangle area of North Carolina which, although the state's largest connected region and one of the most economically prosperous, has no unifying mobility network to further its prosperity. "Our Transit Future" (OTF) is an initiative led by Triangle Transit, which is the region’s metropolitan transit provider, with this goal as its aim. OTF has identified light-rail service linking the three-county area, as well as enhancements of Triangle Transit’s existing local bus options, new commuter bus and rail routes and integration of complimentary mobility elements such as vanpooling, car and bike sharing and sustainable community philosophies to form a region with multiple and interconnected ways to move people more effectively. Efforts to establish this network, including financing and organizing, are presented here.
