Union County is seeking a qualified consulting firm to develop a Transit Feasibility Study to determine the viability of public transit. Union County, in cooperation with the City of Union and the towns of Carlisle, Jonesville, and Lockhart, received South Carolina State Mass Transit Funds from the South Carolina Department of Transportation to conduct the study.
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the needs, consider alternatives, and recommend implementation strategies. The Transit Feasibility Study will consider economic development with an emphasis on jobs and job related training transportation as well as general rural public transit opportunities. It is anticipated that the Transit Feasibility Study will also assist with applicable transit funding possibilities and requirements.
