Kyle and I were able to meet with Jan Brewton, Director of Parking Services at the College of Charleston, and subsequently Vonie Gilreath, Mobility Manager of BCDCOG on the respective dates of November 4th and 18th. Both discussions have been very helpful in our implementation of a RideShare program here at CofC. Ms. Brewton and Ms. Gilreath showed genuine excitement about our aspirations and were able to giveus valuable insights on both the possibilities and limitations.
Jan Brewton explained sources of funding as well as the process of surveying students and collecting data regarding transportation at the collegiate scale, while Vonie Gilreath provided us with information dealing with the bureaucratic process at the city and regional scale as well as the website structure of Trident Rideshare. We hope to continue our group’s relationship with these two experienced and knowledgeable professionals in our goal of making transportation more sustainable here at College of Charleston.
