The Charleston Area Regional Transportation Authority, or CARTA, announced it will extend its services to Summerville for the first time.
The new route, known as the Dorchester Road Express Route 3, will run from Summerville to downtown Charleston.
“We have received numerous requests over the years to extend service to Summerville,” said CARTA Executive Director Christine Wilkinson. “We know there is a need to service neighboring communities and we are pleased that we are able to connect the current system to Summerville. This service was carefully planned and we believe this will be a highly utilized efficient route.”
The route will also continue downtown and make four stops, including:
- Meeting and Columbus streets, near the Piggly Wiggly store
- Meeting and John streets, near the Charleston Visitors Center and the Charleston Museum
- Calhoun and St. Philip streets, near the College of Charleston campus
- Calhoun and Jonathan Lucas streets, near the Medical University of South Carolina
