You get a grant, and you get a grant

RTA members,

It’s not every week that one of our key partners receives a significant federal grant, supported by RTA, that will jumpstart multimodal transportation. So that would be something to celebrate.

However, this week, our region received not one but two major federal grants that will advance our  mobility future.

USDOT Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg announced that the City of Durham would receive more than $12 million to upgrade Holloway Street — the busiest transit corridor in the city — and improve safety and multimodal access. Improvements will include new or expanded sidewalks, bus stops, and intersection enhancements — all of which will improve the ridership experience.

In addition, GoTriangle, working in concert with the Research Triangle Foundation, will receive $25 million to create a new mobility hub in Research Triangle Park. This will relocate the RTP regional transfer center to a location near Miami Blvd. that will be directly served by future BRT along NC 54 as well as future intercity rail. The Triangle Mobility Hub site is also only one mile from the HubRTP downtown project. The project also includes charging infrastructure and approximately 10 new electric buses.

Our partners effectively highlighted the importance of both of these projects, and RTA wrote letters in support of both the Durham Holloway Street and RTP Mobility Hub opportunities. You can learn more on these pages (Holloway Street, RTP Mobility Hub).


Let’s get moving,
