Crazy Holiday Time… Consider Alternative Ways to Getting Around!

Saving money at this time of year is tricky at best!  AND trying to find parking during the heavy holiday shopping is crazy… and getting around safely during the party season– a serious consideration each time going out!

So, to get around the party traffic,  unempty parking spaces AND TO SAVE GAS MONEY to be used for other things this time of year… TRY CHAPEL HILL TRANSIT OR TRIANGLE TRANSIT.  Carpooling is a great alternative, as well as using a bike (in this unusually warm December weather)!  Any way you look at it, alternative transportation is a great way to get about this holiday season!
