Several centers in Raleigh, N.C., that had moved to block city buses from driving through their parking lots have backed off from that stance.
The owners of both Brier Creek Commons and Towne North Shopping Center agreed to allow Capital Area Transit Authority Buses at those sites.
Raleigh City Manager Russell Allen said other bus systems, such as Triangle Transit Authority, may eventually have stops at the shopping centers.
“Staff has also opened discussions about long term access for other providers, TTA, and others, and about an on-site transfer station,” he said.
The agreement with Towne North is permanent, while the Brier Creek agreement is tentative. City leaders hope thewill become permanent by early August.
