North Charleston Park & Ride Adjustment – Effective 11/06/17

Thank you all for your patience with our North Charleston Park and Ride.  We apologize for all the changes.

Starting Monday, November 6, 2017 all CARTA riders please return to parking in the front parking lot near Velocity.  The parking lot paving appears to have been completed for now, so we should have a little more flexibility with parking spaces, but please try to stay within the area shown below on the map.  

Buses will resume picking up at the front parking lot only on Monday 11/06/17.  

A couple of quick reminders:

  • Please be mindful of how you park.  Most spaces are now lined, so please take up only one space per vehicle so your fellow passengers will have the ability to park as well.
  • Do not park in the spaces around Velocity building (connected to the building around the complete exterior) or in the very front of Velocity (on Rivers Ave.)

Permanent Park and Ride Update: We are still waiting on the sale of the land we are purchasing located on the other side of Texas Roadhouse to be finalized.  At this time we do not have any additional updates or estimates when it will be completed.  Staff will provide updates on site at the parking lot and through email as we receive them.  Again thank you for your patience and understanding.  Please feel free to call or email us with any questions or concerns.
