Take Surveys and Participate Online
Phase 1 of public outreach occurred in May and June 2021.
The Better Bus Project Survey / Encuesta del Proyecto Better Bus - in English and Spanish, was available until June 18 and has now closed. The survey helped the City pick our 10 miles of Bus Access Project corridors. Additional rounds of engagement and survey opportunities will come in Fall 2021!
Results for the first round of engagement will be posted below soon.
The Better Bus Project team is committed to equitable engagement. The Better Bus Project Public Engagement Plan (PEP) is guided by the Equitable Community Engagement Blueprint, adopted by the City of Durham in 2019. Engagement efforts will be early, continuous, a two-way exchange of ideas, and directly reflective of the community’s priorities and insights.
The Better Bus Project team will
- go to the community to seek out involvement,
- collaborate with four Community Partners on outreach to hard-to reach populations,
- be flexible and adjust engagement efforts to respond to the community, and
- establish accountability groups, ensuring historically underrepresented groups are actively participating and help design the participation.
- Luma Consulting, LLC will lead engagement in Spanish-speaking/Latino/a/x communities throughout Durham.
- Bragtown Community Association will lead engagement in the Bragtown neighborhood centered between North Roxboro Street and Old Oxford Highway.
- Be Connected Durham will lead engagement along the Fayetteville Street Corridor centered between Lakewood Avenue and Riddle Road.
- Durham Committee on the Affairs of Black People, Inc. will lead engagement along the Holloway Street Corridor, which will be focused on the Holloway Street and Wellons Village communities.
In support of the Durham Language Access Plan, in addition to consulting with Community Partner Organizations, the team will translate key documents into Spanish, and provide other language translation and interpretive services upon request.
