Starting this Monday, CARTA is expanding their bus route to include McClellanville and Awendaw. You can try out the ride for free until September 28th. Pickup points include the Town Hall and the Kangaroo Express and leave at 5:25, 10:20, 12:20, and 3:20 and stops numerous places in Awendaw as well as the new Walmart, US 17 & SC 41, and K-mart in Mount Pleasant. This is a great new travel option for people without other means of transportation, but don’t expect to get anywhere fast, with the 26 mile route from Kangaroo Express to Gregories Store on SC 41 taking an hour and 12 minutes.
