The Wake County Transit Plan was released to the public for the first time on Tuesday, Dec. 8, 2015.

• Bus Rapid Transit (BRT): These buses will provide riders with reliable, fast transportation using a mix of technology, dedicated lanes, and other tools and techniques to move around congestion and stay on schedule.

• Commuter Rail Transit (CRT): This method offers a way to use existing rail corridors to create train connections around the community and region.
