According to the North Carolina Division of Air Quality, up to two thirds of the air pollution in our State comes from mobile sources such as cars and trucks. Its time to consider alternative ways to get around, especially to work! For more information about all of your commuting options, visit the PART website.
PART will get you where you need to go in the Triad! Our “state of the art” modern buses connect Winston-Salem, High Point and Greensboro with affordable, comfortable transportation.
Consider riding with a friend to work, church, or to your child's sporting events. For each car we get off the road, we reduce smog forming emissions by 40 pounds over the course of the year.
Reduce your stress level and share the ride. A single van can hold as many as 15 people, which means that for ever vanpool we form, we can reduce air pollution emissions by 500 pounds a year.
Not only does bicycling get you in great shape, it is also a great way to commute. Most buses now have bike racks so that you can commute by bus and bike.
You don’t have to walk to work to fulfill your Challenge pledge. Just skip using your car at least once during the challenge. Is there some place you can walk to instead of using the car? Perhaps walk with your kids to the park or to a friend’s house.
Did you know that:
Telecommuting has several names: e-commuting, e-work, telework, working from home. It is a work arrangement in which employees can work completely from home or work part of the time from home. This allows employees some flexibility in their work schedule and employers cost savings on office space, parking, etc.
