|Transit Outreach in Lincolnville|
In N. Charleston the new route will connect with the CARTA #1 Express and CARTA #10 Rivers Ave bus, both strong, heavily used bus lines. A park and ride facility under construction there will provide shelter, bathrooms and parking in the future.
The new bus line will also be the first in that are to be represented on Google Tranist, so trips can be planned online with connections to other CARTA bus routes.
Later, the Bus Rapid Tranist Line planned to run from Summerville to Charleston will bring radically faster transit to this area, cutting travel times in half.
|Summerville Transit Supporters.|
People in the area want better transit. Huge amounts of new construction and development are planned and a transit alternative to the often 90 minute car trip to Charleston is desired. People from Summerville, Lincolnville, Ladson and Sangaree have all made their desire for better transit known to their elected officials. Our outreach teams were nearly always the first people to go out and talk to residents and businesses in the area about transit. In it's 150 year history, local planning agencies had never visited the historic town of Lincolnville to discuss transit.
Or organizing efforts helped people in their area find their voice and get improved transit.
Best friends of Lowcountry Transit will continue their outreach and advocacy efforts for better transit this fall. To get involved contact William Hamilton at (843) 870-5299 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
