Town of Mount Pleasant, BCDCOG Conducting Transit Study

Published

on

The Town of Mount Pleasant and Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester Council of Governments are partnering on a town-wide transit study, with Phase I to focus on the public transportation needs and desires of residents and businesses.

An online survey is available through Aug. 17 here (https://surveymonkey.com/r/mtptransit).  Paper copies of the survey are available at Mount Pleasant Town Hall. A public open house will be held Tuesday, Aug. 7 from 3 – 7 p.m. in the Town Hall foyer to share findings and gather input on what future transit service should look like in Mount Pleasant.

“It’s very important to us that we offer service where there is demand and need,” said BCDCOG Executive Director Ron Mitchum. “Our goal is to put the right service in the right area at the right time, and one way to ensure we achieve that is to speak directly with riders and would-be riders.”

Those who would like to stay updated on the study or have specific questions are asked to email BCDCOG principal planner Sharon Hollis at sharonh@bcdcog.com. Recent CARTA outreach has included discussions regarding service with officials of Folly Beach and Isle of Palms, as well as residents of Daniel Island.

“Lowcountry residents have realized that public transit and other transportation alternatives are going to have to be in the mix if we’re going to avoid long-term gridlock,” Mitchum said.
