GoTriangle’s Board of Trustees voted Wednesday to authorize the agency’s interim CEO and president to begin negotiations with a potential developer for the Raleigh Union Station Bus Facility on West Street in downtown Raleigh.
The Regional Transit Center was closed for several hours Monday after a GoTriangle passenger alerted Durham police and GoTriangle employees that he had seen another passenger leave a large bag by a trashcan on the platform and run.
On Monday, Oct. 14, GoTriangle Route 102, which runs peak hours between Raleigh and Garner, and GoTriangle’s Knightdale-Raleigh Express, another peak-hour-only service, will be replaced by two new all-day GoRaleigh routes.
Together, GoCary, GoDurham, GoRaleigh and GoTriangle have produced the “Your Better Way to Go Campaign” to tell real stories of real riders sharing the good news about how transit can be, among other things, your stress-free, reliable, affordable and earth-friendly way to go.
The Raleigh City Council voted Tuesday to approve a rezoning request that will allow GoTriangle to proceed with its plans to build a bus transfer facility that together with Raleigh Union Station will create a multimodal hub that vastly increases travel opportunities and access for passengers.
In the first year of the Youth GoPass program, the Triangle’s teenagers used their free passes to board public buses to get to school, work or play across Orange, Durham and Wake counties more than 460,000 times.
