Final Study Recommendations for Route Improvements

Greenlink will host a drop-in style open house at the Transfer Center (100 W. McBee Avenue) on August 24 to give citizens an opportunity to learn about the final Comprehensive Operational Analysis (COA) report. The purpose of the study was to identify improvements that would increase convenience and efficiencies for current Greenlink customers while remaining cost-neutral. Members of the public can drop in at their convenience anytime between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. Milestone presentations, which highlight data collected throughout the COA process, can be downloaded here: Milestone #1; Milestone #2; Milestone #3.

Mobile Apps

Seeking Volunteers for Beta Testing the New Greenlink App

Greenlink will be launching a new Intelligent Transportation System (ITS), which will include a smart phone app for passengers. The app will display real-time locations of Greenlink’s fixed route buses and provide travel directions and estimated travel times.
 
Greenlink is seeking up to 10 current passengers who ride Greenlink buses regularly to help test the app and help work out any bugs that riders may encounter. Please email jbarefoot@greenvillesc.gov if you are interested in serving as a beta tester.
