Recognizing the need for transit alternatives (like Bus Rapid Transit, Light Rail, or Commuter Rail) along the I-26 Corridor between Summerville and Charleston, the Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester Council of Governments (BCDCOG) initiated the I-26 Regional Fixed Guideway Transit Alternatives Analysis study (I-26ALT). The purpose of I-26ALT is to enhance regional mobility with transit along the I-26 Corridor between Summerville and Charleston – providing people with an alternative to sitting alone in their car in gridlock on I-26. Check out i26Alt.org for more information. For a general overview of the alternatives considered, click here.
I-26ALT Project Public Meeting Dates
Three public meetings will be held at various locations to gather input on the most viable transit alternative for the I-26ALT study area. Please plan to attend one of the following meetings to show support for transit and share your opinion about the alternatives! It is crucial for the public to weigh in so that the alternatives analysis reveals the best transit option for our region. All three meetings will cover the same material, so pick the one most convenient for you:
