Vantage Point is part of a multi‐disciplinary team that will provide a broad range of transit consulting services to Triangle Transit in the Raleigh‐Durham metropolitan area. As part of this analysis we are evaluating potential market impacts and transit oriented development opportunities for development of commuter rail service on an existing intercity Amtrak/North Carolina Railroad service alignment.
There is currently service to downtown Raleigh, downtown Cary and downtown Durham. Up to nine additional stations could be developed along the commuter rail corridor. The station characteristics are similar to Newport based upon proximity to downtown Raleigh and proximity to major universities and research and development areas.
Vantage Point is assisting the project team in identifying station facility requirements, potential for phased transit oriented development and adoption of land‐use controls and public policies to support the rail system and address land‐use and economic development objectives.
