Transit Alliance of the Piedmont

Transit Alliance of the Piedmont (TAP) is an educational 501(c)(3) public charity nonprofit based in North Carolina. TAP is a non-partisan, citizens’ group supporting a multi-modal transportation network that encourages transit, walking, bicycling, and thoughtful land use and development in the Piedmont Triad region of North Carolina, through education, advocacy and other forms of community engagement.


The future of our region depends on the decisions we make today.  Building a strong transit network benefits us in a number of ways:

  • Equity - transit should be available for everyone, irregardless of race, income, geography, or age.

  • Sustainability – transit reduces greenhouse gas emissions and fuel consumption and promotes sustainable land use patterns.

  • Community Building - transit shapes growth and encourages the development of communities that are as safe and fun to walk and bike in as to drive, and built on a human scale, making our city more attractive to potential companies and residents.

Our Mission

TAP works to promote enhancements to the Piedmont Triad’s multi-modal transportation network that spur economic development, encourage regional equity, improve our health and safety, protect our natural resources, build community, and connect people to opportunities.
