Year In Review | GoTriangle

gt-year2016 was an exciting year for transit and smart commuting! In 2016, GoTriangle introduced #GoTogether, a campaign to inspire the community to seek viable travel options outside of driving alone in a car. We also sent Route 405 into Carrboro, gave out 10 well-deserved Golden Modes awards,  filled three Storm Relief Buses to the brim, and passed the Wake Transit Plan! Continue reading

GoTogether with GoTriangle

#GoTogether v2.pngGoTriangle is excited to launch a new education and awareness campaign, GoTogether, sharing real commuter stories to inspire our community to seek viable travel options to work, school, doctor’s appointments and other important places, without driving alone in a car.

“The Triangle is a great place to live, work and play. Because of that, more than a million people already call this region home, and we are growing every day. Rapid growth also means increased congestion and a higher demand for more travel options to support the high quality of life in our community,” said GoTriangle Communications Director Mike Charbonneau. “As Wake, Durham and Orange counties talk about the future of transit, we also want to show our community the options available today to GoTogether.”

Every day thousands of Triangle citizens use a bus, carpool, vanpool, bike, or walk instead of driving alone. Some seek alternatives to save money, relax, be more productive on their commute or to reduce their carbon footprint. Others rely on the transit network to get where they need to go and to connect to greater opportunities. GoTogether highlights the stories of Triangle commuters, from a father and son biking duo to a creative entrepreneur who uses his bus trip to get a jump on the day. Riders share why and how their commute works for them.

Will You Dump The Pump?

2015_DTP_PrintReadyArtwork_ButtonDump the Pump Day, sponsored by the American Public Transportation Association, is an annual day that encourages people to ride public transportation, to take them where they need to go, instead of driving a car.

Tomorrow, June 16, 2016, we will be celebrating Dump The Pump here at GoTriangle! We believe public transportation is a convenient travel option that also helps people save money. According to APTA’s June Transit Saving Report, a two-person household can save, on average, $9,474 annually by downsizing to one car. That’s a lot of money! Continue reading
