 Fuquay-Varina Downtown Bike Share ConnectionThis project will consist of a bike share program that will make a loop that connects downtown Fuquay to downtown Varina. Fuquay-Varina Same as Sponsoring Agency $97,500.00$0.00$525,000.00
 Raleigh Union Station Phase II: RUS BusRaleigh Union Station is a multi-phase, multimodal facility located on the western side of downtown Raleigh. Upon completion, the facility will provide seamless connections between multiple transportation modes including intercity passenger rail, local bus, taxi & rideshare, bike & pedestrian, future bus rapid transit, regional commuter rail, and the planned Southeast High-Speed Rail. Phase II includes a new bus facility, with both off-street and on-street components, structured parking, and a future development opportunity on the site directly connected and immediately adjacent to Phase I. Raleigh Union Station’s bus facility, a.k.a. “RUS Bus”, will leverage future private development above the public transportation component—including mixed income housing (market rate and affordable housing) and commercial uses—in a single innovative project delivery proposal. Public sector improvements for the proposed project include an eight bay off-street bus transfer facility, a pedestrian bridge connecting directly to Raleigh Union Station, an on-street Bus Rapid Transit platform, pedestrian improvements along West Street, signal prioritization at 12 intersections, and tactical wayfinding/ADA enhancements.

Needs to be AddedDowntown Cary Multimodal FacilityThe Cary Depot has served local and regional transit since 2005, as well as Amtrak since 1996. The facility serves as the main hub for GoCary and as a secondary hub for GoTriangle services. During peak hours, the facility is near capacity. This leads to increasing safety concerns along the Depot access road. The Wake County Transit Plan outlines an expansion of local and regional bus service and the addition of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) and Commuter Rail (CT) over the next ten years. A new downtown multimodal center is needed, as the existing facility is unable to support the increased service. A feasibility study will determine the best location for a new multimodal center. This study will also evaluate proposed BRT corridors into downtown Cary. The site will need to accommodate a multimodal center that serves local and regional bus service, BRT, CRT, Amtrak and NCRR, in addition to providing parking options for commuters. The Town of Cary received FFY2019 LAPP funding for Architectural & Engineering Design (preliminary engineering) services, as well as right-of-way and land acquisition needs. We are now requesting funding from FFY2020 LAPP funds for construction of the facility. Cary Same as Sponsoring Agency $900,000.00$1,600,000.00$2,500,000.00
