Two Link Tuesday – Carless March is Here

IMG_4441Happy March! I hope everyone is enjoying the lovely sunshine in NC! Read on to hear about Carless March and the coolest bus video I’ve ever seen.

1. Today Begins #CarlessMarch – Twitter

If you haven’t noticed, this blog has a new writer! My name is Samantha Allen and I am the new Interactive Marketing Associate for GoTriangle. As part of my job, I update our social media channels, write for this blog, and collaborate with others on awesome marketing ideas. One month into my new job and I’ve decided to take on another challenge…Carless March!

IMG_4705For the next 31 days I’m going to be putting my keys down for a bus pass and walking shoes. I will be posting weekly updates and tweeting as much as possible! I’m excited to learn as much as I can about the environmental benefits of alternative transportation, as well as see from the perspective of our bus riders who don’t have a car. Wish me luck!

2. Dump the Pump with OCTA on OC Bus – YouTube

The Orange County Transportation Authority has made this awesome video of a guy who decides to ditch his car for the bus. Totally dramatized, but exactly what I needed to get ready to start Carless March today!

  1. Good luck and Challenge Accepted!

    Well, mostly anyway. I may have to settle for a “Less-Car Month” rather than a full-on “Car-Less Month” due to certain errands and child-related stuff. So far, I’ve been able to ride my bike and take the bus everyday for my work commute this week (instead of driving and parking at Durham Station). Monday and Tuesday, with Spring temps in the 60s, that was spectacular.

    Today, riding in 30 degree weather….eh, not so much.

  2. Challenge Accepted! I haven’t had to use my car this entire week; it’s all been bicycle or bus. Monday and Tuesday, with sunny skies and temps in the 60s, the ride was spectacular. Thursday and Friday…not so much.
