Earlier this week, GoRaleigh, along with GoDurham, were announced as co-recipients of the Transit System of the Year Award by the North Carolina Public Transportation Association at their annual conference.

The state-wide award, given to transit systems based on their ridership, innovation efforts, efficiency, and other criteria, is given annually. Winners were selected by an independent evaluation committee chaired by the NCPTA executive director and comprised of media and trade association professionals.

“GoRaleigh is on the cutting edge in North Carolina,” said David Rhew, Executive Director of NCPTA. “They easily stood out this year with their downtown station renovation, expanded service network, credit card-ready ticket vending machines, and their overall efforts to improve the public’s perception of transit. We are delighted to recognize them for their outstanding innovation and leadership in public transportation.”

“I’m really proud of everyone on our team at GoRaleigh,” said Marie Parker, General Manager of GoRaleigh. “From our bus operators, mechanics, operations and administrative staff, everyone is invested in making our system the best in the Southeast. I can’t wait to see further improvements over the next few years as the Wake County Transportation Plan is implemented.”
