Mass TransportationSubmitted on: October 30, 2018
As Greenville evolves from a big town to a small city, transportation in and around the county has become a major issue for the growing population. It is almost impossible to travel to any point within the county without a personal vehicle. This is not just a problem for individuals. Business owners are especially frustrated with the lack of alternate transportation means to get workers to jobs in the downtown area where parking is a strain for middle and low-income wage earners.
Recognizing that healthy growth is unsustainable without addressing deficiencies with GreenLink, city and county officials are teaming up to identify solutions to meet the immediate and long-term needs of Greenville’s mass transportation system. While working on a strategy for the future, the group is considering options to fund the $1 million dollars needed to keep GreenLink operational after June 2019. Additionally, officials are working to identify park-and-ride locations to relieve parking issues in downtown Greenville.
