Orange County likely voters

New poll released on transit attitudes in Orange and Wake Counties

This arrived in the last hour from Triangle Transit staff. Interesting timing for the Commissioners' meeting!


The Regional Transportation Alliance is out with its spring 2012 survey of potential voters in Orange and Wake counties on transit improvements.

 In a nutshell:

            Nearly 60% of Orange County voters support a sales tax for transit; this year the number of respondents in Orange opposing the measure fell to its lowest level ever

 In Wake, numbers remain above 50%; support has dropped slightly since 2010; 70% of those questioned say they believe they would benefit from improved transit whether or not they use it.
