Greenlink will make the first significant improvements to its routes and stops in decades when it implements a series of route changes on Monday, July 1. The changes are recommendations from the Comprehensive Operations Analysis, an eight-month study conducted by the Atlanta-based firm Connetics Transportation Group for Greenville Transit Authority in 2017, according to a news release.
The Greenville Chamber of Commerce this year identified better funding for Greenlink as a key goal.
There are three primary changes:
- New route names and numbers
- Three new transfer locations in addition to the downtown Transit Center (Taylors Walmart on Wade Hampton Boulevard, Home Depot on South Pleasantburg Drive and the Publix shopping center on Mauldin Road)
- Bi-directional routes (instead of being giant loops, the new routes will go out, turn around and come back to the Transit Center on the same road)
More information on routes and fees can be found online.
