TO THE EDITOR:
UNC students, faculty and staff know the importance of transit for getting easily and safely to campus — especially given limited parking.
A few years ago, Orange County voters voted to raise a half-cent sales tax to fund transit improvements, including the Durham-Orange Light Rail and bus service expansion.
Some of this has already been implemented, and UNC students, faculty and staff are seeing the benefits: examples include year-round night service on the Chapel Hill Transit CM, CW, D and J routes and extension of the GoTriangle 405 route.
Local government officials, including the Orange County Board of Commissioners, are currently reviewing updated Transit Plans from GoTriangle.
