COMMUTER SPOTLIGHT: Carolyn Salley
We like to bring you stories of commuters just like you who are loving their non-drive-alone commutes! Check out how Carolyn’s bus rides have changed her commute for the better.
My first transit ride was December 2010. I wanted to try it out during a slow period; the week prior to Christmas. I then went to Wednesdays and Fridays after my 5 a.m. workouts. I then realized how much I enjoyed the naps, mental rest from riding MARTA and not driving , and mostly the quiet of the bus! I’ve been a constant rider since.
I drive a lot in and around town as well as out of town, so it’s nice to be able to sit back, relax and leave the driving to someone else – even for 45-60 minutes. Plus, I like the relationships I’ve built with the other commuters and the drivers. I’ve also limited the miles on my 2008 Honda Accord!
Ready to see if a clean commute like transit is right for you? We can help you pick a new commute mode that saves money, reduces stress and could even earn you some extra cash!
