“RTA Leadership Team membership ensures that our company and our employees are represented regarding transportation issues in the Triangle area."  - Ed Paradise, Cisco Systems, Inc., RTA 2015 Chair


The Regional Transportation Alliance represents the regional business community and provides the sustained, long-term focus and business perspective needed to advance essential regional transportation solutions.

The RTA approach

The Regional Transportation Alliance business coalition is the only group with the regional footprint, stature and business perspective necessary to maximize improvements in transportation.

Strong business leadership and investment in RTA provides the organized, collective voice that allows us to:

  • Identify mobility needs of the business community 
  • Frame the issues with a business perspective 
  • Provide solutions through professional knowledge and expertise
  • Determine immediate and future applications in consideration of opportunities and tradeoffs
  • Develop relationships with decision-makers as the representative of the regional business community 
  • Bring partners together and overcome challenges with strength, sustained focus, and resilience

As a business organization, we understand that resources of money, time, focus, and political capital are finite. We identify threats to our region's mobility, 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.

Whether it is highlighting a crucial project, catalyzing an initiative, lobbying for legislation, bringing together key players from across the region, or identifying a pathway to success, RTA members get our region moving.
