Our Roles in Public Transit

How does a nearly 100 square mile city like Durham or an over 1,500 square mile region like the Triangle expect to maintain sustainable growth without public transportation? Each of us in the community has a role to play in making sure we have an excellent public transportation system by USING IT!  Consider your current commute and the amount of time and energy wasted in single passenger vehicles each day by commuters commuting to and from work or school.  Consider the impact of each person in your neighborhood using an alternative mode of commuting at least once a week.

In our Bus Buddy Program, Bus Buddies recruit neighbors to try transit at least 3 times in a month. If you are interested in learning more, please contact DeDreana at 919-323-3244 or by email – busbuddy@cleanenergydurham.org

See below for the top 10 reasons to make a commitment to commute by bus.

Transit Art in Durham

Last month marked the 1st Durham Bus Shelter Art unveiling.  As Mayor Bill Bell pointed out, the art marked the creativity Durham is known for.  The new bus shelter at 519 E. Main Street in front of Oldham Towers apartments gives seniors in the building a visually appealing place to sit as they wait to catch the bus.

Check out our photo album on Facebook and media coverage.
