Intermodal Center

Welcome to
CARTA Transit System

CARTA stands for: Charleston Area Regional Transportation Authority. CARTA offers Fixed-route, Flex Service, Express commute service, and Paratransit service throughout the Charleston Metropolitan area, including The Trolley (DASH) service in the Historic Peninsula area of the Charleston.

This site provides information about how the system can take you almost anywhere your life takes you in the Charleston Metro area including work, shopping, hospitals, schools, and much more.


The idea of an intermodal facility originated in the early 90’s with the City of North Charleston.  When CARTA was formed as a regional authority, the project officially became one of the projects CARTA would handle.

What is the Intermodal Center?

The North Charleston Regional Intermodal Transportation Center will be a hub gathering many modes of transportation together in a strategically located area.  The facility will be the future home of some of CARTA operations and administration as well as a Park and Ride Lot.

Amtrak, Greyhound buses and various taxi companies will operate from this one centrally located facility.  By centralizing these services to one location, passengers will e able to access their preferred means of transportation more easily.  Services and amenities for transportation patrons, such as ticket booths, secure and comfortable waiting rooms, restrooms, food service, newsstands, gift shops and more will be available.  In addition to transportation services, the intermodal facility site may include retail, residential, hotel rooms and entertainment venues.
