Does anyone here feel like there's some things we could do to help improve our public transportation in the upstate areas (Anderson, Greenville, or Spartanburg counties mainly)?

My biggest issue is the wait times on buses. It seems like the only buses anywhere in the upstate (or even SC for that matter) that don't have wait times at one hour is Clemson. Having lived in cities where bus service is a regular thing, the average wait time on a weekday is 7-10 minutes, 15 on a Saturday, and 30-60 minutes on Sunday...so, IDK about you but the main reason I don't ride is because I don't have time to wait an hour if I haven't calculated the time it will be there, nor wait an hour after I get dropped off. Also, a 6-6 or 6-8 schedule doesn't seem effective to me either. From what I've noticed, things don't really seem to wind down until 9-10 pm, so why not set the weekday last ride as 10?

I'm open to any suggestions or opinions you might have on this matter, but please be constructive.
