“Public transit is a public service and CARTA is helping to reduce mobility concerns for Lowcountry voters on Election Day,” said CARTA Board Chairman Mike Seekings.“We want to make transportation to the polls simple and accessible for eligible voters, not just now, but for years to come. We’re happy to accomplish that through this initiative.”
