Individuals over the age of 55 will be able to access Charleston Area Regional Transportation Authority (CARTA) and TriCounty Link services for free on Sunday, Dec. 9. The perk is part of both systems’ quarterly Senior Series, which encourages seniors to ride transit free of charge.
“Seniors are a vital and growing part of our community, and it’s important that we help keep them mobile, active and independent,” said CARTA board of directors chairman Mike Seekings.
“The Senior Series is a great opportunity for seniors to ride the bus at no charge, whether they’re an every-day customer or it’s their first time,” said TriCounty Link board of directors chairwoman Anna Johnson.
