About This Activity

The Piedmont Authority for Regional Transportation (PART) invites you to participate in the 6th Annual Commuter Dash 5K to kick-off the Triad Commute Challenge 2015. This year the race will be held in Downtown Winston-Salem on Saturday, March 28, 2015 at the Merschel Plaza (Formerly Civic Plaza) so be sure to mark your calendars. This FREE event hosted by PART and Triad Air Awareness encourages people to try alternative transportation at least once during the challenge. Last year over 5,500 people took the Triad Commute Challenge and committed to switch from a single passenger vehicle to an alternative transportation solution like walking, biking, using public transportation, carpooling, vanpooling, or teleworking at least once decreasing the vehicle miles traveled by 2.8 million miles which translates into an emissions reduction of 1,898 tons and saving more than $384,000 in fuel. Sharing the ride means not only cleaner air but also a healthier community and a more vibrant economy. Visit us online at to register and learn more.
