It’s Time for #CarlessMarch

Last year one of our very own, John Tallmadge, committed to going carless for the entire month of March. Part of his motivation was to get a firsthand understanding of what it’s like to depend on public transportation in one’s everyday life. In looking back on his experiences, I felt challenged and intrigued, something I’ve felt a lot during the last 6 months I’ve spent at GoTriangle and Triangle Transit.

Ergo, I’ve decided that #CarlessMarch is a tradition that should be carried on and I’m going to be the transit employee to take up the calling this year.

If you follow our blog you’ll have read about my experience riding the bus for the first time as well as why I’ve continued to commute this way instead of driving. Keep following along as I take a month to experience what it’s like to be a full-time DATA, Triangle Transit, Cat, and Chapel Hill Transit rider.

I’ll be at bus stops like this one this entire month. If you see me say hello!
