Dashing through Downtown

Today was the annual Dump the Pump event presented by CARTA. As I looked at our schedule, I knew I wouldn’t be able to participate. I do want to continue to try to utilize public transportation whenever we are able. I hope their event today was an huge success, and look forward to reading their […]


Jen and I like to use bikes as auto alternatives when we can, which is difficult out in the ‘burbs. With connector roads and 5-lane speedways, a simple trek to the grocery can be scary. Things aren’t getting easier. When Whipple Road was given a make-over, we thought this important vein in Mount Pleasant would […]


We all know how fast the area is growing, and the perpetual construction of I-26 between Summerville and Charleston is certainly a symptom. Even though traffic continues to grow, adding lanes will not solve this problem alone. Using public transportation, working remotely, moving near your office, and carpooling are all things you can do to […]


Speaking of parking, Monday is World Carfree Day 2008 – a day to ditch our cars and seek alternative transportation. We often ride our bikes to the park, pool, and store when possible, Jen rides the bus, and we often shoot for one weekend day to be car free.  It would be tough to give […]


It’s back to school time! Well, for us, this is our first jump into the wonders of public school (Kindergarten, here we come!) Leading up to the big day, one question has been popular in the conversations: Will he ride the bus? We have lived in our neighborhood for 8 years, and I have never […]


Seeking out alternative transportation is a great way to reduce your impact on the environment and save a few bucks. Jen has been blogging about riding the bus and driving abstinence, and I’ve been rocking the hybrid – but are always looking for ways to go farther. We would like to integrate cycling into our […]


Driving Abstinence

Hopefully we are all showing some thought to the environment when driving these days. Purchases of hybrid vehicles, public transportation, car-pooling, even hypermiling can all contribute to the causes of these days. Whether your reasons are economic or environmental, we all need to make more changes. I have found that the best way I can […]


This Thursday, June 19th, is National Dump the Pump Day, and CARTA is celebrating by offering free rides on all routes. Cheers to CARTA for giving us this opportunity to participate and save a little money, all while helping the environment and promoting public transportation. “We hope that new riders will consider trying CARTA on […]


Route 40 Revisited

What fun my littlest guy and I had riding the bus downtown! Graham and I sat on the bench and caught the CARTA bus at 9 a.m. The bus was on time, so our wait was minimal. We boarded, paid $1.25, and rode route 40 downtown. Graham was comfortable and quiet on my lap, until […]


Bus Route 40

It’s official. After living in Mt. Pleasant for almost eleven years, I had yet to use a form of public transportation. No longer – I introduced myself to CARTA via bus route 40. I am officially becoming a bus rider. I consulted the website for CARTA, and was dismayed by the lack of working information […]
