HOP Lot Changes Effective Monday May 20, 2019

Beginning Monday, May 20, HOP parking lot operations will take place on Charleston County-owned property at 995 Morrison Drive. Twenty-five parking additional parking spaces will be made available adjacent to the current 34 HOP spaces on the south side of Conroy Street
The move was necessitated by the kickoff of a large construction project at 999 Morrison Drive, where a majority of HOP parking inventory is currently located. HOP service will continue every 15 minutes and the pickup location on Conroy Street will remain the same. CARTA supervisors will be on hand on Monday to direct HOP users to the new parking spaces.
Summary of changes:
  • Effective Monday, 05/20/19 all HOP related parking should be in the HOP parking lot located on the south side of Conroy Street (HOP lot 2).
  • The stop/shelter on Conroy Street will now be the only stop at the HOP Park and Ride lot.
  • Services will continue to run every 15 minutes as currently scheduled.
  • Changes will not impact service.
Call customer service at 843-724-7420 (select menu option 1) for any questions.
