The American Tobacco Campus is helping companies with employees at the massive Durham complex fight traffic by offering free bus passes that are good through June 30, 2016. And the offer is working with more than 200 passes issued.
The ATC launched the program in partnership with GoTriangle in July.
“People who work at an ATC tenant employer of any size can ride the bus from anywhere in the Triangle to and from work, Monday-Friday – for free until June 30, 2016. We supply a GoPass, they hop on the bus,” ATC says.
The program is designed to help employees get to work while reducing congestion and improving air quality through less vehicle traffic.
“We’re happy that the region is growing, and we’re eager to do our part to make getting around easier,” the ATC says.
The offer has ” zoomed past expectations,” ATC, which celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2014, reports.
“So far, we’ve issued more than 200 passes at ATC, plus about 60 to professionals working at one of the American Underground’s three Durham locations. To date, more than 25 businesses are participating, ranging from restaurants to the nonprofit giant FHI360 to software powerhouses Bronto and Avalara.”
Not just popular. ATC also has received two awards related to the program.
ATC also operates the American Underground, which maintains shared office operations at the ATC, in downtown Durham, and in Raleigh.
ATC also is part of Capitol Broadcasting, which is the parent company of WRAL TechWire and WRAL.com.
