Big News From CARTA: Launches New Real-Time Mobile App and Texting Service; Previews Website

CARTA has announced its partnership with Transit, the leading mobile app provider for public transportation.

Riders will now be able to navigate the Charleston area with accurate real-time predictions, simple trip planning, step-by-step navigation, service disruption notifications and departure and stop reminders – and it’s all presented in a clear, bold interface.

Transit is available for free download in the Google Play and the Apple App Store. Download and tell your friends!

For riders without smart phones or Internet service, CARTA also introduced a new SMS texting and phone service. Customers can call or text (843) 202-4410 and provide the stop number of their choice, which can be found on signs at bus stops or online here. An automated system will then relay the next two real-time arrivals for each route servicing the selected stop.

Attached you’ll find a Transit 101 document on usage of the app, as well as photo to use for social media posts. Thanks for your support!
