GoTriangle Board Approves Increase to Wake County’s Annual Motor Vehicle License Tax

The Wake County Transit Plan is moving forward. Today, the GoTriangle Board of Trustees approved a $3 increase to the Annual Motor Vehicle Tax in Wake County to partially fund the 10-year plan. The board’s action follows earlier approval today by GoTriangle’s Special Tax Board.

The Annual Motor Vehicle Tax is outlined in the Wake Transit FY 18 Draft Work Plan that was released earlier this week for public comment. The FY 18 Draft Work Plan outlines specific proposals, and the governing agencies are requesting public comment between Feb. 20, 2017, and April 3, 2017.

Funds from the vehicle license tax will help pay for Wake Transit Plan improvements that will be phased in over a 10-year period.   The plan includes a tripling of bus service, four Bus Rapid Transit Corridors and Commuter Rail service connecting Garner, Raleigh, Cary, RTP and Durham.
