Traffic & Transit

Share Button

Chapel Hill lacks a town-wide traffic mobility plan. Planning in Chapel Hill has occurred in a piecemeal fashion of specific areas, but at no point has the Town addressed the cumulative impacts of all these developments on traffic and transit in Chapel Hill.

CHALT believes that good public transportation is essential to a livable town, including connections to major population, retail and employment centers within town and throughout the Triangle.  Today too much of the town and county’s transit dollars are going toward a Light Rail connection between UNC and Duke.  Chapel Hill’s 2020 target areas for development are not served at all.   Chapel Hill’s bus system lacks sufficient funds to maintain the current level of service.

CHALT is committed to explore options to improve bus service within Chapel Hill and throughout the Triangle, and aligning transportation with development and growth.
