Public Transit

Helping meet the mass transportation needs of South Carolina's citizens.

The Office of Public Transit serves to implement Transit Programs for SCDOT. Its mission is to help meet the mass transportation needs of South Carolina's citizens by providing planning, research, administrative functions of state and federal assistance programs, evaluation of existing and proposed programs, and coordination of mass transit projects statewide.

Meeting the mobility needs of citizens dependent on mass transportation, especially the elderly and disabled, is an important function of the Office of Public Transit. The office works with state and local governments to serve this need. In South Carolina, 20 general Transportation Public Providers receive some form of funding through the SCDOT.
