Transit Progress Happening 

Exciting progress is being made on Lowcountry transit this week.

Last night in Lincolnville Town Council, following our  presentation on possible bus routes for the area, Jeff Burns representing CARTA & Tri County Link announced that full time bus service would be coming to the area See short video We’ve been working with the people on Lincolnville, Ladson and Sangaree on getting better bus service since February. We’ve talked to over 3000 people in this rapidly developing area and participated in six community events and found a community ready to make transit work and eager for the Bus Rapid Transit line now in the planning stages. Improved bus service may begin running in the fall and we’ll continue to work with the people out there to help them get people on the buses once they’re running.

Tonight (July 12) at 5 pm, The City of Charleston will vote on buying the property on which the Mt. Pleasant Street Bus Rapid Transit Station may be constructed (Between Joseph Floyd Manor and the Longshoreman’s hall, across the street from Santi’s) You can read the agenda and proposed ordinance. This station will serve as a gateway to Charleston. We continue to work to be sure the BRT line continues to the heart of the City at Line Street  a mile and a half south of this location instead of, as some people have proposed stopping there. The BRT line could enhance the proposed Lowline Park along the abandoned rail line while still helping reduce traffic congestion and keep the city vital.

On Tuesday, July 17, at 5 pm, the City of Charleston will consider the CARTA budget. If you have concerns about bus service downtown, on James Island, or West of the Ashely, please come and speak during the public comment period. Once the budget has passed, improvements are harder to obtain. You can get Full Details on the Facebook Event page.  You can contact Mayor Techenberg by calling 843-577-6970 or reach your City Council member through contact information on this page.
