Lowcountry Rapid Transit Project Profile

The Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester Council of Governments (BCDCOG) proposes to implement a bus rapid transit (BRT) service connecting North Charleston and Charleston. The Project is planned to operate in a dedicated guideway for 11.7 miles (55 percent of the route) in a combination of median-running and side-running exclusive lanes. The Project includes 19 60-foot articulated electric buses with doors on both sides, two non-revenue vehicles, four electric bus opportunity chargers, traffic signal priority, upgrades to the existing operations and maintenance facility, and a park-and-ride facility with space for approximately 140 vehicles.
