Very nice:

Mark Rickards, the new director of public transportation for the city of Greenville told GreenvilleOnline.com that the service could start as soon as January, when Clemson students return for the second semester, or as late as the start of fall semester next year.

He said preliminary plans call for the route to stop at Clemson’s various satellite locations in Greenville: the University Center, the International Center for Automotive Research, Greenville Hospital System’s Patewood Campus and Clemson at the Falls downtown.

The route would also go to One, the office-and-retail development under construction on Main Street where Clemson plans to move graduate business programs it now houses at Clemson at the Falls.

Rickards said the route might include other stops in Greenville as well.

Rickards said he envisions the buses arriving hourly and operating year-round except for holidays and Sundays.

Following Greenlink’s existing schedule, they’d likely run between 6:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m., “and there could be later trips in the evening because there are night classes too,” he said.

Dammit g-man! You ALWAYS beat me to it!

Seriously, a VERY good development. Our area needs integrated transit options.

It does sound good, but with a limited schedule.

Gotta start somewhere! Hopefully ridership/demand will justify increases in frequency as time goes on.
