Transit and Mobility
The City of Durham Transportation Department works to provide a broad multi-modal transportation network for its residents. Pushing to provide increased transportation choices in the City and a robust transit infrastructure involves extensive collaboration between the City and its regional partners, along with the local transit planning agencies GoDurham and GoTriangle.
Durham Station Community Engagement Survey
Beginning in 2024, the City of Durham will embark on a $13.5 million dollar renovation to the station. The Durham Station improvements are meant to add to this facility's capacity, efficiency, safety, security, and shelter. A survey was created to understand how designs might enhance comfort, reinforce a sense of security, prioritize rider amenities, and uncover opportunities for cultural expression in plans for the future of the Durham Transit Station (515 W Pettigrew St). The survey is now closed, but there are two pop-up meetings at Durham Station to discuss the redesign scheduled for 6/27 and 8/22. You can register here to attend the meetings.
Durham is working on a new County Transit Plan, a long-term plan that guides us how and where to improve and expand public transportation in Durham. More information is available on the Engage Durham Transit Plan page.
GoDurham Better Bus Project
The GoDurham Better Bus Project will design street, sidewalk, and bus stop improvements that provide safe access to bus stops, enhance comfort at bus stops, and improve bus service on GoDurham routes.
