RTA leaders discuss why they invest in the RTA.
The Regional Transportation Alliance serves as the recognized regional business voice for transportation initiatives and policy across the Triangle. The RTA focuses on strategic solutions that will decrease the area's commuting times, expand mobility options, improve shipping efficiency, and attract and retain top business talent.
The RTA was founded by the Cary, Chapel Hill-Carrboro, Durham, and Raleigh chambers of commerce in 1999 and formalized in 2001. Today the RTA counts as members more than 100 leading businesses and 23 member chambers, along with our two metropolitan planning organizations for transportation (MPOs), Triangle Transit, and Raleigh-Durham International Airport. RTA members and staff work with elected leaders and transportation partners to solve transportation and mobility issues facing the region.
The RTA is a regional program of the Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce with a separate, dues-paying membership. Under the leadership of Ed Paradise, RTA 2014 Chair, and our dedicated volunteer leaders, the RTA will continue to focus on advancing multimodal solutions needed to sustain prosperity and enhance quality of life.
