Molly DemarestWhere are we as a Triangle going to be 10, 20 years from now and are we going to have an infrastructure in place so that the entire Triangle community can access the opportunities and jobs being created today.
Karen McCallTransit means access to the services that UNC Health and the medical school provides. We need patients to be able to easily get to all of our facilities here on campus.
Justin LaidlawI think that we as a city can be very progressive when it comes to transit, through collaborations with the city government and the private sector… Thinking about how we can make these options even more seamless for people, taking it one step further, I think, will do a lot for the progress Durham has made in the last 10 years.
Johnson O. AkinleyeIt’s going to create the access for our institution, our students, faculty and staff.
Katy LangI wanted to make sure I lived in a place where I could get around without a car; somewhere where I could get to campus easily
Pete TillmanThe demand for VA Health Care is at an all-time high for us. Some of our patients that live in the area wouldn’t be able to access health care at our medical center or facilities without transportation.
Mike BirlingWhen you think of the sports here in the Triangle and how much sports brings to a community, We have 10 thousand fans coming in pretty much every Thursday through Sunday, it difficult for us to find a place for them to be able to get easy-in and easy-out.
Bill BellWe are not building light rail for today, we are building light rail for what we think our city and our region’s going 10, 20, 30 years from now.
