RALEIGH – State transportation officials are asking the public to share their thoughts about the future of public transportation in North Carolina. A series of regional workshops will be held in May as part of the process to create North Carolina’s Public Transportation Statewide Strategic Plan.

Attendees will view a presentation about commuting patterns, transit opportunities and the strategic plan process before sharing their ideas during breakout sessions. Participants will help identify problems, strategies and solutions that should be addressed by the strategic plan.

The N.C. Department of Transportation is developing the plan to improve bus, rail, and paratransit services across the state by better matching transit services to the needs of North Carolinians. For more information, visit https://www.ncdot.gov/nctransit/strategicplan/.
