Transit and Mobility

The City of Durham Transportation Department works to provide a broad multi-modal transportation network for its residents. Pushing to provide increased transportation choices in the City and a robust transit infrastructure involves extensive collaboration between the City and its regional partners, along with the local transit planning agencies GoDurham and GoTriangle.

Durham is working on a new County Transit Plan, a long-term plan that guides us how and where to improve and expand public transportation in Durham. More information is available on the Engage Durham Transit Plan page.

The GoDurham Better Bus Project will design street, sidewalk, and bus stop improvements that provide safe access to bus stops, enhance comfort at bus stops, and improve bus service on GoDurham routes.
