A fourth option for getting to and from work is using public transportation. Like carpooling, you are sharing a ride with others on public transit, which reduces road congestions and greenhouse gas emissions. Also, many public transportation systems are shifting to run their buses or trains on more sustainable fuel sources. Duke is a leading example of this, since they rolled out their first partially hybrid buses in 2011!
With using public transportation comes the challenge of scheduling and making sure rides are available when you need one. Thankfully, there are apps today that can help! The best choice for Duke’s campus is the Rider app, which helps you track buses around campus in real time. You can see all the bus lines, the stops along each line, and what time the next few busses will be arriving at each stop.
Another new option for public transportation are the dockless Bird and Spin scooters now available around Durham. With both of these programs, you can download an app, find a scooter near you, and pay by the amount of time for a ride. They are a great, inexpensive form of electric transportation than you can operate on your own schedule.
