Transit is awesome. We want you to know why!
Though #GoLoveNC has ended, we still love talking about the benefits of alternative transportation. Here are FIVE more reasons why transit is so darn cool:
1. Get creative by simply walking!
There is scientific evidence that walking is great for sparking creativity! Even if walking is a small part of your daily commute, it’s a great time to get ready for the day.
2. Get your daily exercise in with a bike commute.
Regular physical activity has shown to boost energy, improve mood, and combat both major and minor health issues.
3. Meet awesome people with vanpool.
GoVanpool is a matching service that helps find people in your area to travel with and provides the van for you! (And maybe your future karaoke buddies?)
4. The bus helps save money.
The cost of owning and operating a car can be upwards of $9,000. Public transit is a great way to help combat these expenses. You can find our bus passes here.
5. Help save the planet.
Alternative transportation has done wonders for reducing congestion and carbon emissions. So jump on your skateboard or segway or whatever you ride, and get going!
