The City of Raleigh’s transit program, GoRaleigh, conducted a substantial renovation to their existing transit hub in downtown Raleigh, formerly known as Moore Square Station. This station renovation included a major renovation to the traffic flow associated with the bus station, and included significant facilities upgrades including new ticketing and restroom facilities, as well as a new elevator and stair tower for the parking deck connected to the station. The renovations resulted in a significant improvement in traffic flow and capacity for the station, which will be expected to shoulder significant increases in transit demand as part of the recently-approved Wake Transit Plan expansion.
