Public Input on Route 504: Anderson and Route 508: Wade Hampton

Route 504: Anderson and Route 508: Wade Hampton are both proving difficult to operate on time. This is problematic because a late return to the Transit Center keeps all routes from departing on time and these delays continue to increase throughout the day, creating an unreliable schedule for our customers.
As a result, Greenlink is proposing changes to the routes and is holding four public meetings to give customers a chance to review the proposed changes and provide input. The same information will be shared at each meeting, so customers are encouraged to attend the one most convenient for them:

  • Thursday, October 24 – Drop in between 7:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. at the Transit Center (100 W McBee Avenue, Greenville, SC 29601)

  • Monday, October 28 – Drop in between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. at the Taylors Library (316 W. Main Street, Taylors, SC 29687)

  • Tuesday, October 29 – Drop in between 5 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. at the Transit Center (100 W McBee Avenue, Greenville, SC 29601)

  • Wednesday, October 30 – Drop in between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. at Greenville Memorial Hospital Community Room (701 Grove Road, Greenville, SC 29605)
