By RCH | May 30, 2024

The time is now to review the Recommended FY 2025 Wake Transit Work Plan, participate in a survey, submit comments, and sign up to follow Wake Transit program progress.

An updated Wake Transit Work Plan is developed annually with two distinct features. First, there is the allocation of funds to specific new and continued operating and capital projects in the upcoming fiscal year. Second, the Recommended Work Plan includes the Multi-Year Investment Program and the Capital Improvement Plan which provide a look ahead at how Wake Transit revenues are anticipated to be spent through FY30.

In FY25, approximately $49 million has been allocated for operational expenditures and approximately $203.1 million will support a variety of capital projects. A few highlights include three new transit routes beginning service, numerous existing routes expanding to serve more people, bus stop and station improvements, and the expansion of existing safety and security measures.  

Input from community members and other Wake Transit stakeholders is vital to the planning process. There are several ways for individuals and groups to submit their input about the Work Plan. The Recommended Work Plan document can be reviewed online. Public comments are accepted through the following channels:
