Transit Advisory Committee

The GoTriangle Transit Advisory Committee (TAC) was established in October of 2017 and is made up of 30 Triangle residents, with 14 from Wake County, nine from Durham County and seven from Orange County. Together, the committee helps to ensure that the GoTriangle Board of Trustees is informed of community issues associated with providing a high-quality transit network that serves the needs of our entire region by:

  • Providing advice and feedback to the board during planning for public transportation systems.
  • Offering views of constituent groups.
  • Suggesting how transit can assist with equity issues, such as homelessness, affordable housing, economic opportunity and living with disabilities.
  • Providing information regarding the customer experience of transit riders.
  • Communicating stakeholder opinions, attitudes and needs to the board, identifying areas of concern and recommending changes
