“Just the supplies on the five buses represent about 60,000 pounds of precious cargo that we’ll be sending to two of the most devastated areas of our state,” says Jeff Mann, GoTriangle CEO and president. “I couldn’t be more proud of how our community came together for this event."
The fortunate North Carolina residents who don’t need the canned food and other supplies they stockpiled before Hurricane Florence now have a chance to help by donating those items and more to the Here to Help Hurricane Relief effort.
With Hurricane Florence forecast to hit the United States on or near the North Carolina coast this week, GoTriangle and GoDurham managers are closely monitoring the storm and implementing plans that will keep customers fully informed if weather conditions warrant any service changes.
Come Monday, GoTriangle will expand the number of weekday trips offered on its popular express route between Raleigh and Durham from 24 to 34, a 41 percent increase in service that has regular DRX rider Bob Spaziano stoked.
