On Tuesday, January 24, Greenlink will hold the first of three public meetings to solicit input on its plans to expand trolley service beyond the Central Business District in downtown Greenville. The meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. in the conference room at the Caine Halter YMCA, located at 721 Cleveland Street.
The expanded trolley service is expected to begin this summer and will feature two new routes. Because a portion of the funding for the new trolleys will come from tourism-related taxes, the new routes must provide access to restaurants, retail, parks and leisure activities. At the meeting, Greenlink staff will discuss the proposed service expansion and attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback.
Greenlink will hold two more public meetings on Wednesday, February 1. The first will take place at noon at the Greenlink offices, located in the downtown transit center at 100 West McBee Avenue. The second will take place that evening at 6:30 p.m. at the West Greenville Community Center, located at 8 Rochester Street.
