From the http://www.ourtransitfuture.com web site:


The Triangle area continues to experience explosive growth — growth that requires increased mobility demands. Improvements must be made to the local transportation systems to maintain the area's quality of life and continue to attract new industry, jobs and residents.

It's time for the Triangle Regional Transit Program,

 a comprehensive study effort to look at regional transit rail opportunities and explore expanded regional busway networks. The program, spanning Orange, Durham and Wake counties, is an exciting move forward toward transit connectivity in the Triangle.

What do you think? Please join us for one of the upcoming public meetings so your voice can be heard. With meetings being held throughout the Triangle, there is sure to be one convenient to you. We look forward to seeing you there! 


 Ruby, thanks for kicking off the publicity for this meeting. I recall getting at least one puzzled look at a Triangle Transit board meeting (where I am the "Trustee" for Chapel Hill) when I suggested posting to blogs.So you've solved any puzzles they might have. I'm jumping ahead and going to the one in downtown Durham tomorrow, and if you really want to be immersed in The Plan, you can find your way there too. I'm assuming most reading OP would come to the one in Chapel Hill, where I encourage you to sound off, and to be candid in your opinions.     Ed Harrison

I only learned of it from Rickie White's post here on OP: http://orangepolitics.org/2010/06/carrboro-downtown-chapel-hill-light-rail-connections-to-the-regionI am going to try to attend the Chapel Hill hearing.

I just wanted to bump this post up and mention that I *WILL* be there tonight although I probably can't get there until about 6:00 (since I take the TTA BUS from my job in Durham).

My understanding is that this event is more like an open house.  So just stop by whenever you get a chance this evening and register your thoughts with Triangle Transit.
