The Charleston Area Regional Transportation Authority (CARTA) is hoping to continue its growth by connecting commuters with an express bus from Summerville to downtown Charleston.
The "Express Route 3 Dorchester Road" will run on weekdays, departing roughly every 30 minutes from Dorchester Village Shopping Center at the corner of Dorchester and Trolley roads from 5 to 8:47 a.m. and making stops only at Bosch, Joint Base Charleston, Boeing, the Charleston Visitors, Calhoun and St. Phillip streets, and near the MUSC hospitals.
The route will then run in reverse from downtown approximately every 30 minutes from 3:07 to 7:23 p.m. — taking roughly one hour to run the route.
The new service starts Monday the 25th of June.
You can see the detailed routes and timetables in this PDF.
The express bus is the authority's third, joining the James Island to North Charleston express route and the Mt. Pleasant to West Ashley express route.
CARTA's routes are searchable on Google Maps, but the new express route does not appear to yet be in the index.
