CARTA committed to supporting CCSD in event of service interruption

Charleston Area Regional Transportation Authority (CARTA) is working closely with Charleston County and Charleston County School District to prepare contingency plans and support should there be an interruption in school bus service.

“When the safety of the children in our community is at risk, it is important for us to do everything we can to support and protect them,” said County Council Vice Chair and CARTA Chairman Elliott Summey. “Charleston County helps to financially support CARTA and it is our duty to serve this county’s school system, the children and their families. Should a work stoppage occur, CARTA in conjunction with the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office will be working with the school district to ensure the safety of the persons most affected by this situation- our children.”

Durham School Systems and Local Team 509 were in negotiations in Charleston to discuss contracts. A possible strike has been approved by LOCAL TEAM 509, however involved parties don’t anticipate a strike at this time. CARTA has been working closely with the County and Charleston County School District to ensure the transit system is prepared to help should a strike occur.
