Hospitality on Peninsula (HOP) 

Whether you’re a concierge, line cook or day-tripper, for anyone looking to avoid the hassle of searching for a parking spot or repeatedly feeding meters, CARTA’s Hospitality on Peninsula (HOP) park-and-ride program provides a convenient option.

As the region safely reopens, parking in the HOP lot is free for the rest of 2020. There is also no cost to ride. (See the route here.)

The route begins at the HOP lot at 995 Morrison Drive, runs down Meeting Street, along Broad Street and back up to East Bay Street to the lot. Track buses in real time by downloading the app, Transit.

HOP is the first park-and-ride on the peninsula and was brought to fruition via a collaborative partnership with the City of Charleston, Charleston County, the Charleston Area Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester Council of Governments.
