One of my co-workers vanpools from Salisbury to Uptown. He and 6 or 7 others are in the vanpool - he usually doesn't drive but every vanpool is different. It costs him $61 a month, of which $60 is covered by our employer. You can put together a vanpool, or look for one that isn't full and needs members.

Try this link for more info:

I have friends in Salisbury who enjoy the laid back atmosphere, although they admit the area is growing rapidly and real estate prices have increased. There are a number of charming and historic homes in and around Salisbury.

Also, there is a 1.5 billion dollar biotech research facility that just went into Kannapolis, NC which is about 19 miles S of Salisbury. Real estate had perked up in Kannapolis due to that boost, and the entire area is ripe for more business and subsequent growth. So Salisbury might be a smart place to buy cheaply now, hunker down a bit, deal with the commutes, and then find good jobs, closer.
