Community Involvement / Meetings

Over the next 12 to 18 months, commuter rail planners will work with a range of critical stakeholders to determine what infrastructure improvements are needed to add more train traffic to the rail corridor.

Stakeholders include residents, transit riders, the business community, local governments, universities and other institutions and major employers along the rail line as well as the North Carolina Railroad Company, North Carolina Department of Transportation Rail Division and operating railroads including Norfolk Southern and CSX.

Planners also will evaluate future station locations and other components critical to the success of the project, identify challenges for the project, assess solutions, and analyze economic and land-use benefits of commuter rail.

Public input is always an important part of investing transit dollars, and the survey results will be used to help us understand what potential riders and North Carolina residents want in a commuter rail project. At the conclusion of the study, local elected officials, including the Boards of Commissioners for Wake, Durham and Johnston counties, will decide whether to proceed with the project.
