Guest Post: Why a longer commute makes me 4X happier

Henry Copeland, the founder of (an app that boosts motivation, team spirit, and fitness), recently gave GoTriangle‘s Route 405 a try. Route 405 is the GoTriangle connection between Chapel Hill and Durham. Copeland was surprised to find joy in transit: “What started a few weeks back as a one-day experiment has turned into a psychic journey that’s been full of pleasant surprises.”

See for the post I just rewrote on/about this bus.

GoTogether with GoTriangle

#GoTogether v2.pngGoTriangle is excited to launch a new education and awareness campaign, GoTogether, sharing real commuter stories to inspire our community to seek viable travel options to work, school, doctor’s appointments and other important places, without driving alone in a car.

“The Triangle is a great place to live, work and play. Because of that, more than a million people already call this region home, and we are growing every day. Rapid growth also means increased congestion and a higher demand for more travel options to support the high quality of life in our community,” said GoTriangle Communications Director Mike Charbonneau. “As Wake, Durham and Orange counties talk about the future of transit, we also want to show our community the options available today to GoTogether.”

Every day thousands of Triangle citizens use a bus, carpool, vanpool, bike, or walk instead of driving alone. Some seek alternatives to save money, relax, be more productive on their commute or to reduce their carbon footprint. Others rely on the transit network to get where they need to go and to connect to greater opportunities. GoTogether highlights the stories of Triangle commuters, from a father and son biking duo to a creative entrepreneur who uses his bus trip to get a jump on the day. Riders share why and how their commute works for them.
