Biker Profile: Darcy Downs

IMG_6109Darcy Downs, Transportation Planner at GoTriangle, ditched her car in April for a full-time bike/bus commute. As we celebrate the last day of Bike Month, we asked Darcy about her first month as a bike commuter!

1. Describe your everyday commute:
DD: From my house in West Raleigh I bike 3/4 mile to the bus stop. If I’m going to our Raleigh office, I will take Route 300, 301 or 305 to downtown and bike the rest of the way. If I’m headed to RTP, I take Route 300 to the Regional Transit Center.

2. Why did you decide to become a bike commuter?
