The Town’s long range transportation plan, Advance Apex: The 2045 Plan, identifies a priority route for a local bus (circulator) along NC 55 between Beaver Creek Commons and Walmart. The Town of Apex, in partnership with the Town of Cary, has completed an implementation study for this primary route, called "GoApex Route 1". The study includes recommendations for: bus schedule, frequency, fare, stop locations, paratransit, and potential service agreements. The Town of Apex was awarded funding through the Wake Transit Plan to complete this work. The Town of Apex Transit Circulator Study with final recommendations is available. Report findings have already been used to inform successful funding applications and the Town’s Capital Improvement Plan.
