Transit in the Triangle: the Benefits for You and the Region

The Institute for Emerging Issues, in conjunction with WUNC TV and Blueprint America, is holding a public education forum, Transit in the Triangle: the Benefits for You and the Region, on January 28, 2010, from 5-8 pm at the McKimmon Center in Raleigh.

This forum will be an excellent opportunity to learn about the importance of transit for the Triangle region, how your life could be improved with transit, what does transit look like today, and how other metro regions have benefited from transit and transit-oriented development.
