MCA is a participant on the Nelson Nygaard team tasked with working through the implementation of the Wake County Transit Plan. In November 2016, Wake County voters approved transit-dedicated funds to help pay for the improvements found in the 10-year Wake Transit Plan.
The MCA role in the plan is to update the 2013 Local Coordination Plan for the county and working in conjunction with service providers, agencies and jurisdictions provide inputs regarding community- based services and provide input into the ADA paratransit program as well as capital and operating budget recommendations.
Assignments include updating the inventories of public transportation services provided, consideration of needs assessments especially in the more rural areas of the county that do not have fixed route services, inclusion of ADA paratransit operations throughout the county and input from municipalities regarding potential funding and support for these community based services.
Public sector inputs will be received from Wake County, GoRaleigh, GoCary and GoTriangle staff and recommendations will be vetted through the Core Technical Team for inclusion in the FY 19 funding and implementation plan.
