The Durham-Wake Commuter Rail Project


Because you voted Yes

Over a million people will make Wake and Durham counties their home over the next 25 years. The Wake County and Durham County Transit Plan gives our residents, as well as visitors, another way to get around our vibrant community without spending time sitting in traffic.

The Durham-Wake Commuter Rail Project is an integral part of the transit plans in the two counties. CRT will use existing railroad tracks to provide comfortable passenger service that allows riders to relax or work on their way to key destinations.

• 37 miles of commuter rail service would run between Garner, downtown Raleigh, N.C. State University, Cary, Morrisville, RTP and Durham;
• Up to eight trips would run in each direction during peak hours;
• One to two trips would run each way during midday and evening hours; and
• Will use the bus network to connect riders with key destinations like RDU Airport.
