The town of Holly Springs is seeking two people to serve on a 70-person advisory committee for the transit network planning effort. One person will represent the business community. The other will represent the community at large. The time commitment includes a half-day introduction on Tuesday, Dec. 9 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. and a day-long workshop on Jan. 20.

Advisory Committee members will have opportunities to guide key policy decisions while learning what’s in the plan and why.

For more information about serving on the advisory committee, contact Kendra Parrish, Town Engineering director, at (919) 557-3935 or

The new study combines review and updating of existing transit plans with more rigorous network design and public input and understanding. County officials want to involve the public so that technical thinking reflects community values and priorities.

The updated plan could include increased bus service, rail, and other modes of transportation.
