Being a student can often have a financial benefit in terms of discounts at events, movies, and even cultural sites. Being a College of Charleston student gets you one more discount: free admission on the CARTA busses. Leave your car at home and laugh at the fees associated with parking passes at the College of Charleston. Ride in comfort as someone else does the driving and battles the rush hour traffic. So long as you show your College of Charleston Cougar Card, you are able to ride any CARTA bus free of charge. This includes the CARTA Express – a bus with minimal stops through Downtown Charleston. Routes run between North Charleston and James Island, West Ashley and Mt. Pleasant, and Downtown and Summerville. Each route stops at the corner of Calhoun and St. Philip Streets, thus making it very convenient for the College of Charleston community.
Check out the schedules and find the best route for you.
