Transit - coming soon to Rock Hill!

2 comments

This past week Connectivity team members heard a briefing about fixed route, electric bus transit system that will be starting operations in Spring 2019 in Rock Hill. They discussed how this system will effect connectivity in Knowledge Park, for residents, visitors and students.

What role do you see transit playing in Connectivity in Knowledge Park? What is important to you in making this successful?

Impressive presentation!! Think it will be well received. I do think the buses & the stops need to be clean & safe. Public will need to be educated on the "rules to ride" to ensure compliance.

It's exciting to see how the loops are integrated. Each loop has meaningful points of interests and services that residents (and visitors) can utilize.

    This is a Ted Talks episode from 2013. This episode made me think of the four lane portion of White St. between Dave Lyle and Oakland Ave. https://www.ted.com/talks/jeff_speck_4_ways_to_make_a_city_more_walkable#t-315795
