Public Transportation Statewide Strategic Plan

The N.C. Department of Transportation is developing the Public Transportation Statewide Strategic Plan to improve bus, rail, and paratransit services across the state by better matching transit services to the needs of North Carolinians. Stakeholders and the public are invited to provide input at community workshops across the state as part of the North Carolina Public Transportation Statewide Strategic Plan. The workshops are free and open to the public. No registration is necessary to attend. Community workshop dates, times, and locations are available on the project website - www.ncdot.gov/nctransit/strategicplan.
