GoRTP: Transportation in the Park
As the Research Triangle Park's transportation management association, GoRTP is committed to finding sustainable solutions that help you get to, from, and around the Park. We actively partner with regional transportation organizations to provide improvements that link into existing and planned transportation networks across the Triangle.
Fiscal Year 2022 Wake Transit Work Plan
The 10-year Wake Transit Plan is being updated through 2030. The plan outlines the long-term vision for public transportation investment in Wake County. Investments funded in 2021-2030 will build upon the growth and improvements already realized in the first three years of plan implementation. Community input received during the 18-month update process confirmed that connecting all Wake County communities, connecting the region, creating frequent and reliable urban mobility and enhancing access to transit, “The Four Big Moves” outlined in the plan, will remain the program’s goals moving forward. The 40-day public review and comment period for the Wake Transit Plan Update is Feb. 19-March 31.
Employer Response to COVID-19
GoTriangle is seeking input from organizations in the Triangle that are willing to share their concerns and plans for safe practices for employees’ return to work. This survey will assist us in creating a stronger, safer, more informed region as we learn how to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic. Together we can provide better insight for others across the region.
Ready for Rail?
The Triangle region is growing quickly, and with it, so is traffic. Help Wake, Durham, Orange and Johnston counties determine the best path forward for a proposed 37-mile commuter rail.

RTP Employee Benefits
Many employers in the Park offer generous transit subsidies to their employees. GoRTP also offers a limited number of transit subsidies for those that do not receive employer benefits. New bus riders can receive a free $25.00 bus pass and new vanpool riders can receive a 3-month vanpool reimbursement.
Employees that use alternative forms of transportation in their daily commute can also qualify for awards and incentives through GoTriangle's GoPerks program.
Emergency Ride Home
One common concern with commuting via transit or vanpool is the lack of transportation flexibility in case of an emergency. With Emergency Ride Home there is no need to worry about being stranded at the work place during a family emergency, unscheduled overtime, or a ridesharing driver who can’t shuttle you at your usual time. Emergency Ride Home even allows necessary side-trips on the way home, such as picking up a sick child at daycare.
To qualify for this benefit, first ensure your employer is registered with the program.
