12 volunteers made a great effort Saturday, Sept. 24th. to get the word out to help save the East Cooper Connector #401 Bus Route. Over 300 residences got transit information in the Old Village. Thanks to the faculty and students from the University School of the Lowcountry for the muscle they brought to this effort, including stuffing hundreds of bags. Many people were delighted to learn about the new route and we now know there are a lot of people, living quite near the route who still don’t know about it. Linda Page and Ann Owens also operated an information table at nearby Royall Hardware where they talked to many other people.

The Transit outreach effort continued Sunday when an additional 4oo people recieved transit information from CARTA staff and volunteers at the Green Fair. Meaning at least 900 housholds and groups of people got information about transit this weekend.
