GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Leaders in both Greenville and Clemson said Wednesday they are considering a plan to create a bus line that connects the two cities.

Greenville Transportation Department Director Mark Rickards said the city was approached a few months ago by Clemson University with the idea, which is in the very early planning stages.

Clemson University Parking and Transportation Services Director Dan Hofmann said the idea made sense, because the school has several campuses in the Greenville area. He said the campuses have created an increased demand for faculty and students to commute to and from Greenville.

Hofmann called the idea a very good thing, and Rickards agreed.

"We are very supportive of a regional transit system," Rickards said.

Both Hofmann and Rickards said there is no timetable for the project yet.

In related news, Greenlink, Greenville's mass transit system, will begin service to Mauldin and Simpsonville next month.
