Simpsonville City Council voted to move forward on Greenlink’s proposal to extend bus routes to the city.

Greenlink will purchase three buses and set up bus stops and shelters, with funds from a federal stimulus grant.

As I understood an earlier story about this, the Golden Strip service will also include Mauldin (whose city council already approved, I believe). Very good to see! Perhaps a Park n Ride or two could crop up along I-385 in the not-too-distant future?

Now lets hope that people ride those buses so that they don't cancel it due to low ridership. Great to see some progress.

I'd love to see a park and ride. I live in Fountain Inn and work two blocks from the bus station. I'd much rather read for half an hour and ignore traffic.

Yep - my brother did that for years in Houston and LOVED it.

Agreed. In addition to reading, I'd like to see Greenlink add cup holders to the buses on these 385 routes.....gotta have my Starbucks while I read.

Would be nice to see the bus go past Taylors in to Greer and at least to Hwy14, but then again, I have no clue what the bus system has in the way of riders and what the potential of riders in (and going to) Greer would be. But I think if they went down WH turned on Pointsett to Hwy 14 and then go back up to WH were that would be "the end of the line", so to speak, and then back up WH, it could only help the area, and probably residents?

I would certainly think that if there is a brain between all the folks that run Greenlink, that the WH corridor would also be a high priority growth area for the transit system.
