#GoLove

This Valentine’s Day, GoTriangle invites you to find love (and transit!) with our 2014 #GoLove Scavenger Hunt, January 27th through February 14th.

Whether you’re a seasoned commuter or new to riding your bike, taking the bus, or using a carpool, #GoLove is for you.  If you’re already smart commuting, we need your help, too.  Last year, #GoLove received thousands of views, and this year we’re hoping for even more – including more prizes!

Just follow our social sites and look for a scavenger hunt clue.  When you see the clue posted, comment or share it.  Each interaction gets you entered into a drawing for one of our prizes:  2 free tickets to a show at DPAC, a gift basket of treats from Videri Chocolate Factory, and more.

Go to gotriangle.org/golove to see the rest of our prizes and contest details.  Just don’t forget the hashtag!

Vanpools

Ride Matching

Share the Ride, Make a Friend on Zimride!

Zimride is UNC's private network for ridesharing. Students can easily split the cost of fuel by posting rides and matching up! If you’re commuting to campus or driving out of town, post your ride and find other UNC students looking to tag along. If you don’t have a car, just post where you need to go and Zimride will match you up with a driver. It’s that easy! Check it out! zimride.unc.edu

Carpooling is Easy with ShareTheRideNC

UNC.ShareTheRideNC.org is a statewide website that was created to help form carpools and vanpools. It is provided free of charge in support of the effort to reduce traffic.  In additional to providing ridematching services, ShareTheRideNC provides access to Emergency Ride Home, the single-trip matching tool, and the upcoming GoPoints and GoPerks incentive programs.
