  • Tax for Transit will pay dividends (Opinion – William Rohe) — UNC Department of City & Regional Planning
    Why passenger rail rather than other forms of public transit First it s not an either or proposition The current Joint Long Range Transportation Plan developed by the Triangle s two Metropolitan Planning Organizations MPOs calls for a three part public transit strategy 1 an enhanced regional bus network to provide rush hour service to outlying communities 2 circulators to provide flexible travel options within major activity areas and 3 modern frequent zero emission light rail service linking Durham to Chapel Hill and North Raleigh to Downtown Raleigh and Cary as well as fast reliable commuter rail service linking Durham to RTP Morrisville Cary Raleigh and Garner The current sales tax referendum would provide funds to support all three strategies A passenger rail system however has several advantages over other forms of public transit It runs on its own right of way Traffic congestion does not affect it and it does not utilize existing road capacity as do bus rapid transit or dedicated car pool lanes A rail system has the potential to take a sizeable number of commuters off our congested roads Another benefit of a passenger rail system is that it will attract high density mixed use development near stations which will reduce sprawl and auto travel In anticipation of a rail system Triangle planners are rezoning areas around the anticipated stations to allow for higher density development and developers are designing attractive new projects To see how this works drive along Charlotte s South Boulevard which parallels the city s new light rail system You will see attractive new residential office and retail development a great contribution to the city s tax base Finally passenger rail reinforces the image of the Triangle as a progressive area in which to live and work In attracting businesses and residents
