The GoPerks Golden Modes

Join us as we celebrate the brightest stars of Triangle smart-commuting in an unprecedented year!

The GoPerks Golden Modes is our premiere event, where we highlight the value of Transportation Demand Management in the region and formally recognize the individual commuters and organizations whose efforts make the Triangle an emerging leader in the field. And in 2021, we’re shining a spotlight on those commuters who went above and beyond for all of us by meeting the challenges of 2020—the frontline, essential workers.

Come see the results of smart commuting in 2020 and hear the commuters themselves describe what it was like for them to travel to work every day through a global pandemic, and what motivated them to choose a smart commute during a time when driving alone held exceptional appeal. Raleigh City Councilmember Corey Branch will give the keynote address, and we’ll officially recognize the commuters who made a dramatic difference to our air quality in 2020 with a special emphasis on the folks who met the extraordinary challenges of the year to keep the essential aspects of life in the Triangle going strong.

 


 

2020 GoPerks Achievement Awards

GoTriangle’s GoPerks Achievement Awards ceremony recognized outstanding commuters who reached remarkable milestones in their greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions by choosing smart commutes, and commuters saved nearly 1 million pounds of greenhouse gasses!

At the June 25th virtual event, commuters shared stories of how they saved 10 TONs of greenhouse gases, the Center for Advanced Hindsight provided insight into the psychology of behavior change to improve the triple bottom line, and we designated the 25 Best Workplaces for Commuters.

Watch the 2020 GoPerks Awards Ceremony to learn the total environmental impact of commuters, the benefit on the local economy, and the psychology of behavior change. Hear directly from commuters of why they participate in GoPerks, and why it matters to them.

 

 

The GoPerks incentive program is facilitated by Share the Ride NC and rewards employees who track their smart commute choices. Incentives are made possible through financial sponsors so we can provide gift cards to local businesses and events across the Triangle to continue encouraging employees to choose a sustainable commute.
