CLEMSON, S.C. (FOX Carolina) -- Clemson City Council has passed an ordinance to create safer spaces for ride-sharing app users.

During the Monday night meeting, council members passed the ordinance that will create a specific space near College Avenue on McHugh Street, in downtown Clemson.

According to Police Chief Dixon,  the ride-share staging area will be for all drivers to pick up and drop off their passengers, between the hours of 9 p.m. and 6 a.m.

Council members ruled all in favor for the idea. Members hope that it will ease traffic and hopefully keep bar goers safer.
