Old West Durham Hop, Sip & Ride

Neighbors from Old West Durham board a hybrid DATA bus at Durham Station after a night out on the town.

Last weekend, neighbors in Old West Durham enjoyed a trip downtown without the hassles of traffic or parking. They simply hopped on DATA bus #11 on Hillsborough Street, took the bus straight downtown (all routes end at the beautiful new Durham Station in the heart of downtown Durham), and enjoyed a night out together at the West End Wine bar. Two neighbors played their guitars for the bus riders, and the driver turned his speakers on so all the bus drivers could enjoy the music.

When they night was over, they strolled back to the bus station for a leisurely ride home (almost every bus leaves on the hour and half hour, so it’s easy to plan a trip home).

Check out more pictures on the OWDNA Facebook page. The neighborhood association hopes to make the Hop, Sip & Ride an annual event. Thanks to the neighbors who planned the event!
