Having a direct transit connection from Cary to N.C. State makes it possible for a brother and sister to attend college, and go together.
N.C. State Computer Science major, Carl Colglazier started using GoTriangle’s Route 300 bus from Cary to the N.C. State campus a little more than a year ago. “I determined that GoTriangle was a good fit for me because I was looking for something that was affordable and convenient.”
This year, Carl’s sister Bethany started joining him on his daily commute. As a freshman studying Industrial Engineering, she, like her brother found GoTriangle was a good fit. “Using the bus is an easy commute and going together to class works with our schedule.”
When Route 300 arrives on campus, Carl and Bethany use the N.C. State Wolfline to connect to their classes.
Both say the ability to commute was a major factor in deciding to go the N.C. State, because of the cost savings. They hope more people will consider taking a bus, biking, walking, or carpooling when possible.
“Look at what's out there, all the opportunities to use public transit. We really need more people using it," said Carl Colglazier.
