I've seen a lot of older threads here. The Raleigh Train Station is now $140,000,000 better. Cary doesn't get the state's tax dollars the way Raleigh does. If you want to see something magnificent go out of Raleigh. It's a site to be seen - similar to the NCMOA's $150,000,000 building that houses the Rodin sculpture collection (The world's largest at that). In any case, don't sell a $140Mil investment short and try to leave out of a lesser station - this is a great station. I'll come back and post once I've taken my first trip out of this downtown Raleigh station (it's next to CAM Raleigh and the Dillon). The Dillon rents for up to $4k/month for an apartment and is well worth visiting if you have time. The 12th floor (or thereabouts) has a magnificent 270 degree view of downtown and hosts about 500+ people for parties on that floor.

CAM Raleigh is holding an amazing Basketball Collection of 13 artists from around the world starting October 4th (grand opening) and lasting until the end of February 2019 (10/4 is also the opening of the CANES season in Raleigh at the PNC Arena next to NC State's football stadium). Taking the train to Raleigh is a great way to see these amazing features of the city. The City of Raleigh is installing a temporary series of art through out the city (the first one went in at the beginning of September and in on Peace street - find others with google). Many other museums to see too. Your tax dollars at work.

And if you want to park your car for free, go out of Cary.

Raleigh Union Station, is a train station designed by people who don't take trains.

If that area of Raleigh becomes a transit hub, I'm sure some of the decisions made will a lot more sense. Until then, Cary Durham have more conveniences for train travelers.

they're planning to build a bus terminal next to the station connecting to all the bus rapid transit routes that will be built in Wake County. Kimley-Horn, an engineering consultant in the area, is in the process of doing a downtown transportation plan to figure out how to make that area the main transit hub downtown.

I could look this up but I'm being lazy - is there a frequent train out of Cary to Downtown Raleigh?

8:08 AM, 9:47 AM, 1:23 PM, 6:08 PM, and 9:53 PM are the current trips ($6 each way). You'll have to wait for commuter rail to get any significant increase in trips (hopefully GoTriangle partners with Amtrak to allow commuters to travel on Amtrak trains as well)

That's cool I didn't know that - would be a little pricey to take the fam though. Kids would like it once in a while though. Do you know if that schedule is weekends too?

I think that schedule is daily. You can always take the train one way and then take the #300 bus back from Raleigh (https://gotriangle.org/sites/default..._route_300.pdf)

Children are 1/2 price. So it would be $6 for an adult and $3 for a child. It's only one child fare per adult, though.
