GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Greenville Transit Authority (GTA) is asking for the public's input on proposed route changes.

According to the City of Greenville, GTA recently presented the results of a recent Comprehensive Operational Analysis of the Greenlink transit system and discussed recommendations from the study. Greenlink wants the public's input before any of the changes suggested by the study are implemented. The city stated that Greenlink will host a series of 16 drop-in meetings during October and November. 

According to the City of Greenville, the proposed route changes will  increase bi-directional route miles by 62.9%, increase transfer between routes outside of the downtown Transit Center by 62.9%, and offer more efficient and dependable service.
