Straphangers to promote East Cooper transit awareness on National Day of Service

  • Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Helping the Mount Pleasant community take advantage of improved public transit services coming to the Johnnie Dodds Corridor later this winter will be the focus of a National Day of Service effort connected to the Presidential Inauguration on Saturday, Jan. 19 sponsored by the Hungryneck Straphangers.

Volunteers will gather at the Starbucks near the intersection of highways 17 and 41 at 9:30 a.m. and then move out to surrounding residential communities and businesses with information about improvements to the CARTA 40 bus service, which will be going from running once an hour to running once every 40 minutes a few weeks later. Soon this service will also be supported by real time bus location and travel data updates through Google Transit transmitted from the buses, allowing riders to obtain updated arrival times for their bus online. They also be distributing information on locally proven transit strategies to make businesses more successful at hiring employees and getting costomers and information on the Tri-County Link Bus route running from that area to McClellenville and Awendaw.
