North Charleston offers free buses between major venues in the city

Posted: Updated:

Tuesday, CARTA launches a free shuttle around North Charleston that drives passengers between busy hubs in the city.

The North Charleston Area Shuttle (NASH) is a new route linking area hotels, restaurants, retail areas, as well as Charleston International Airport and entertainment venues.  The shuttles run seven days a week along International Boulevard with 16 stops at the airport, North Charleston Coliseum, Boeing, hotels, restaurants and key points of interest including, Performing Arts Center, Tanger Outlets, and SCRA Lowcountry Graduate Center.

The service is available free of charge thanks to a partnership with City of North Charleston, Boeing and the Charleston County Aviation Authority.  The service, which officially began on Sunday, June 9, utilizes hybrid buses, a first for the transit system. 

"The City of North Charleston has some of the highest ridership for several of CARTA's routes.  Residents depend on the service to get them to work, while visitors use it to travel between places to stay, visit, eat and shop – all without leaving North Charleston," said North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey.  "This new service mutually benefits both groups with a positive work-live lifestyle."
