Charleston's bus service has grown, offered online route planning through Google Maps, and expanded service, however it's clear CARTA still has much room for growth.
In an overview of the nations 290 tracked metro areas with public transport, the Charleston area place in the bottom half at No. 166 with the average person using public transport 8.5 times per year.
That's beneath Savannah at 16.1 (No. 93) and even Charleston, W.Va., at 18.3 (No. 77).
Perhaps a new bike-sharing service will help boost our rank.
