RTA leaders discuss why they invest in the RTA.
RTA is the business leadership group that provides a strategic, action-oriented focus and a powerful, collaborative voice to advance regional transportation solutions that will attract top talent, grow our prosperity, and sustain the quality of life for our families and our region.
Who we are
The Regional Transportation Alliance serves as the recognized regional business voice for transportation initiatives and policy across the Triangle.
RTA was founded by the Cary, Chapel Hill-Carrboro, Durham, and Raleigh chambers of commerce in 1999 and formalized in 2001 as a regional program of the Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce with a separate, dues-paying membership. 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 (RDU).

What we do
As a business organization, we understand the resources of money, time, focus, and political capital are finite. We identify threats to our region's mobility, identify and make the business case for solutions that make sense in both the short and long-term, and then provide the focus and strength needed to get results.
RTA has a demonstrated track record of success in accelerating mobility priorities, policies, and practices. A summary of RTA accomplishments is available here.
Learn more about the impacts of our success in the RTA brochure. See the interactive brochure below.
