The Triange's New Regional Bus Designs and Branding

The bus systems of the Triangle are getting a new look, designed to demonstrate the increased level of integration between the different agencies, (such as the GoLIVE real-time bus location system) the new branding has been in the works for nearly two years, and will be phased in gradually, to reduce the capital costs.

The GoTriangle Partnership (which consists of Triangle Transit as well as the region's municipal transit agencies) will be rebranded as GO Transit, the name is designed to give the impression of a single regional agency, and to reduce confusion for riders. Though the agencies will maintain their current levels of autonomy, the individual agencies will be rebranded in a similar uniform fashion.

Triangle Transit --> GO Triangle
CAT (Capital Area Transit) --> GO Raleigh
DATA (Durham Area Transit Authority) --> GO Durham
CHT (Chapel Hill Transit) --> GO Chapel Hill
C-TRAN --> GO Cary

Raleigh will likely be the first to roll out the new designs in a significant number, because the Raleigh Transit Authority opted not to paint their newest shipment of buses, in anticipation of the new design. In Raleigh, the new branding will also be accompanied by a new RFID smartcard system, and new fareboxes to accommodate them, which were paid for by a grant. The region's other transit agencies are likely to follow suit in implementing smartcards, and the systems are expected to be unified or at least compatible.

Atlanta would look even better if it could expand its MARTA rail...

Depending on the performance of the Richmond/DC leg they'll seek either full funding for construction or a lesser amount to supplement a longer, state-funded program.
At the present, new tracks are being laid out of charlotte for dual tracks. NCRR is working to have dual tracks from Charlotte to Raleigh.
