Fortify Friday: Weekend Update

With Bike Month in full swing and a sunny Saturday forecast, we’re getting out of the office and spending the next few days celebrating art, local culture, and perfect baseball weather. Read on to see where you can find the GoTriangle booth this weekend:

The 24 Project Premiere

On Monday morning, Triangle Transit launched the 24 Project. Over a single 24-hour period, photographers took the portraits and heard the stories of 24 different riders on each of Triangle Transit’s 24 regional routes. From a man who sold his car and started riding the bus to musical interludes with a didjeridoo, they walked away with some incredible tales.

All 24 portraits will be officially unveiled along with their stories during Artsplosure at the Triangle Transit booth, located in City Plaza next to the ArtBeat installation. Find it on the festival map here

 Bike to the Ballpark

The 2nd annual Bike to the Ballpark series begins this Sunday, May 18th when the Bulls play the Louisville Bats at 5:05 P.M. 

When you ride your bike to the Durham Bulls Athletic Park, you can park your bike in the secure bike valet at DBAP… and if you’re one of the first 200 riders, you’ll get a free goodie bag and receive a voucher for a discounted ticket which includes a Bulls Bucks stadium credit for food and drinks!  It’s also Wool E. Bull’s birthday, so you’ll not want to miss the party. 

45th Annual Bimbe Cultural Arts Festival

We’ll be joining the celebration at Durham’s 45th Annual Bimbe Cultural Arts Festival this Saturday, May 17th in Rock Quarry Park.

Visit our table from noon – 4 PM to find out more about upcoming service changes and alternative transit options available in the Durham area, including the DATA bus and fare-free Bull City Connector line. The festival is rain or shine, so come prepared to spend a day listening to local music, enjoying tasty Durham eats, learning more about the Bull City’s rich culture.

 

See you there,

– Grace
