Title

Narrative

Funded by the Regional Transportation Alliance (RTA), GoTriangle and NCDOT, the Freeway And Street-based Transit (FAST) study is developing an illustrative, scalable approach to transform our roadways into multimodal corridors that can provide rapid, frequent, and reliable transit service across the region.

 

A FAST network will capitalize on the great work that has already been done by the various agencies in the Triangle, complement the existing investments being made on transit studies, plans and implementation, and become a champion to leverage the existing freeway and street system with targeted transit advantage to improve accessibility and opportunity.

 

Preliminary findings are slated to be released on July 16 via a free webinar available at www.letsgetmoving.org/FASTstudy.  Comments are being requested from transportation partners and the public from July 16 through August 31.
