Wake Forest residents invited to Public Transit Plan open house July 10

Monday, June 26, 2023 - 2:52pm

The Town of Wake Forest is developing a plan for the future of public transit. Area residents are invited to attend an open house on Monday, July 10, to learn more about this initiative, view draft transit alternatives, and provide feedback.

Open house sessions will be offered on July 10 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. and 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Alston-Massenburg Center (AMC), 416 N. Taylor St. The AMC can be reached by the Wake Forest Loop (WFL) A and B bus routes. Riders can hop off at the Juniper Avenue bus stop at Taylor Street to reach the center.

Both sessions will have an informal, open house-style format, along with the same content, so residents may drop in anytime from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. and 6:30-8:30 p.m. to view displays, ask questions, and share comments.

The purpose of the Public Transit Plan is to:

  • evaluate existing service;

  • understand the viability of alternatives to fixed-route services; and

  • recommend a solution for transit expansion.
