To the Editor,

Wake Forest needs a comprehensive transit system that benefits all our residents and draws new people to our community. We all recognize that automobile traffic is becoming more and more of a problem in our community.

A final public meeting on a transportation plan for Wake Forest will be held May 16 from 5-7 p.m. at the Renaissance Centre, 405 S. Brooks St.

Please consider attending to speak out for a more efficient bus system on behalf of Wake Forest’s commuters, our working poor, our elderly who no longer drive, our handicapped, our youth, and our future as a hub for relocation and growth.

A two-way bus system within Wake Forest and extended hours for bus transit to Triangle Mall for connections to areas outside Wake Forest would both take cars off the road and enable those without cars to reach jobs, medical facilities, educational institutions, shopping centers, churches, special events, and more.

These initiatives would also be lower in costs and less disruption to Wake Forest residents. They could be implemented much sooner than redesigning roads. It is time to voice your support.
