UNC Employee Featured in Commuter Spotlight
One of our own, Jacqueline Gist, is featured in the GoTriangle Greenlights newsletter this month. She has never driven to campus or used on-campus parking as an undergraduate, graduate student or University Career Services employee. As a member of the Carrboro Board of Aldermen for over 25 years, she has supported fare-free buses, sidewalks and bike paths.
See All Bus Stops on TransLoc
Bus schedules often only list the time points along the route, because it’s impossible to list the exact times for each stop along the route. However, you can see a list of all the stops and when the bus is arriving in real-time by visiting triangle.transloc.com or by downloading the TransLoc smartphone app.
Tired of fighting traffic while commuting to UNC?
Let someone else do the driving for you! Vanpools coming from Cary, Graham, Mebane, and Siler City all have seats available. Check out the details of each vanpool to see which one might work for you.

The cars are self-service and live right on campus.
