N.C.'s Wake County to vote on sales tax to pay for buses, rail

Posted on June 8, 2016

RALEIGH, N.C. — Wake County residents will get to vote in November on a half-cent sales tax that would pay for a “transformational transit plan” that would connect the Research Triangle region with more buses and trains, The News&Observer reports.

The $2.3 billion plan approved by the Wake County Board of Commissioners would bump up bus service across the county and bring commuter trains to the area by 2027. Transit advocates believe the plan is the best way to reduce traffic congestion and connect the Triangle’s focal points, including N.C. State University, Research Triangle Park, Duke University and UNC-Chapel Hill. For the full story, click here.
