The Department of Transportation’s Federal Transit Administration (FTA) announced approximately $6.2 million to nine projects in seven states – including North Carolina – to support planning efforts to improve access to public transportation.

Funding is provided through FTA’s Pilot Program for Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Planning, which helps communities examine ways to improve economic development and multimodal connectivity, and encourages mixed-use development near transit stations.

In North Carolina, the Town of Chapel Hill Transit Department will receive $592,500 to plan for TOD at 16 stations of the proposed 8.2-mile North-South BRT project, which will run along one of the town’s busiest and most vital thoroughfares stretching from Eubanks Rd. in the north to the Southern Village in the south.
