Project Backer: Hungryneck Straphangers
A program of community-based outreach and enhanced communication to increase ridership on the CARTA Route #20: King Street/Citadel Line, including: (1) installation of benches at 4 stops which lack them; (2) community education; (3) enhanced QR Code linking route and stop information in pubic places; and, (4) business partnerships.
Residents of Charleston living or working near the #20 – King Street/Citadel bus route, focusing on that part of the route north to Line Street, including the West Side, Citadel and Hampton Park areas, Wagner Terrace, and Joseph Floyd Manor.
HURDLES & CHALLENGES
Approval of bench locations may require city permitting. The rest follows a model we’re already using with Hungryneck Straphangers in Mount Pleasant. We’ll need to recruit and train a group of resident transit activists and break out of the let-someone-else-do-it-for-us model.
Collaboration with schools, churches, owners of rental properties, Joseph Floyd Manor residents association, the Citadel, the Longshoremen, and neighborhood associations, as well as the city government.
