Make Sure your Campaign or Event can Be Reached on Transit
We believe it is essential that protest and political activity be planned for times and places where transit riders can reach them. A campaign or organization which chooses to plan without regard to transit access tells tens of thousands of transit dependent necessity riders that they're not welcome sand they should vote for someone else. It also tells environmentalists and choice riders that they must use a car, with its attendant social and environmental damage, to reach their event. Many people find driving the Charleston's angry traffic full of stressed people to be very taxing and more and more people refuse to do it. Those that do arrive at your event already worn down by the cruelty and violence of traffic.
Get your Prius Coal Rolled or tailgated by a white pickup and you'll know what we mean. In these stressed, angry times the fight trough traffic is often not worth it.

Remember, being transit enabled includes a safe trip home afterwards. Transit service ends early in some places. Few of our bus lines run past 8 pm and some riders must make a connection to another route to complete their trip. All trips can planned on Google Transit locally now.
Superstop is served by six different bus lines and is the easiest place for a transit rider to reach in teh region.
We're ready to help any campaign, Democratic, Republican or Independent plan events which are transit enabled. Just call William Hamilton, (843) 870-5299. We can usually work through it on zoom or over the phone.
