The goals of the campaign were:
- Give candidates a chance to meet bus riders, tour the system, and learn about transit issues and challenges in their district
- Educate voters and riders on the candidates’ position on public transit.
- Encourage transit riders to vote
Below are a few photos of the past weeks in Charleston and the surrounding area. Thank you to CARTA, the agency for providing this service, and the local ATU members who carry thousands to work, school, and appointments every day across the region. Also huge thanks to all of the local advocates, especially the tireless work of Straphangers leader William Hamilton, in making this all happen and working for a better future for public transit and its riders across South Carolina and the country.
