Over the next week, the Georgia Commute Options blog will explore metro Atlanta’s transit options as part of our upcoming Try Transit initiative, encouraging commuters to try one of the many transit options around the metro area.
Metro Atlanta has a variety of transit options, but not all commuters have given them a try or even know they exist. We’re encouraging commuters to Try Transit September 17-21 to discover the benefits of riding transit on your way to work. Switching from riding alone to a clean commute option could save you money, reduce stress and even help maximize productivity on your way to work. Plus, with the recent opening of the I-75 Northwest Corridor Express Lanes, CobbLinc and Xpress buses traveling along I-75 and I-575 in Cobb and Cherokee counties can bypass the traffic of the regular travel lanes. Transit and registered vanpool customers can travel in the lanes toll-free, incentivizing commuters to try clean commute options and reducing the number of cars on the road.
When you drive change in your commute, you’re helping us all breathe easier, and we want to reward you for that change. Eligible commuters who switch to a clean commute option like transit can earn $5 a day – with the ability to earn up to $150 over an assigned 90-day period.
If you aren’t sure which transit option might be right for you, check out our upcoming blog series and follow along as we highlight metro Atlanta transit providers.
