RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – The City of Raleigh is seeking input from residents on what it wants to see along its new bus rapid transit route that is coming to New Bern Avenue and 10 other stations throughout Raleigh in the coming months.

Beginning Monday, a multi-week community workshop will begin, focusing on the main sections of the New Bern Avenue corridor, a press release from the city said.

The workshop will give members of the community an opportunity to directly meet with city planners and consultants to pitch ideas and ask questions.
