Darcy 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?
DD: I was only using my car to drive to work, so I decided to sell it. My husband and I are now a single-vehicle household. With only one car, we save money on maintenance, gas and other fees. Continue reading
Every day, over 200 GoTriangle employees provide high-quality transit services to a growing region. From the service attendant who makes sure the vehicles are clean, to the call center employee who helps riders plan their trips, to the operators who safely deliver passengers to their destinations and the planners working to expand services in Durham, Orange and Wake counties, each is part of GoTriangle’s success.
Today the GoTriangle Board of Trustees recognized 43 employees with service awards.

Keeping their workers from streaming into their job sites steaming from a long, frustrating commute is what many government agencies and Triangle employers are happily accomplishing with assistance from GoTriangle’s transportation demand management tools.
Through its Share the Ride NC program, GoTriangle helps employers develop smart-commute plans that allow workers to telework or carpool, vanpool, use public transit, bike or walk to work so they can reduce their reliance on single-occupancy vehicles. That helps workers save money and reduces negative environmental effects as well. Continue reading

On Wednesday, October 26, GoTriangle, RDU International, United Way, and WRAL partnered to fill a Storm Relief Bus with needed items for families affected by Hurricane Matthew. By 7pm that night, the three buses and two vans in Carter-Finley Stadium Lot were filled to the brim with canned goods and cleaning supplies for families affected by Hurricane Matthew.
Thanks to the generous Triangle community, the Storm Relief buses traveled into eastern North Carolina on Thursday, October 27, stopping in Nash, Edgecombe, Wilson, and Johnston counties. Items were supplied to the United Way of Tar River Region (Rocky Mount, NC), United Way Food Drive (Wilson, NC), and Partnership for Children and Boys and Girls Clubs of Johnston County (Selma, NC).
GoTriangle thanks their partners and the wonderful Triangle community for the outpour of love and support. Check out the video below:
