Beach Reach Shuttle
The fare-free CARTA Beach Reach shuttle launched on Saturday, May 29 to positive reviews and strong ridership.
Beach Reach ridership reached 95 during the inaugural weekend. A big thank you again to our partners at the City of Isle of Palms, the Town of Mount Pleasant, and Mount Pleasant Towne Centre for making this shuttle possible and fare-free for all riders who wish to visit the beach this summer.
Landside Beach Reach parking is located along Market Center Boulevard in Mount Pleasant Towne Centre. The seasonal park-and-ride shuttle ties-in directly to the existing CARTA system at stop No. 715, a sheltered amenity located near the Belk Men’s store. Connections to Route 40 Mount Pleasant and Route 42 Wando Circulator are available.
The on-island Beach Reach stop is located at 9th Avenue and Ocean Boulevard, adjacent to public beach access. Beach Reach runs on Saturdays and Sundays from May 29 through Sept. 6. Hours of operations are scheduled from 9:15 a.m. (first departure from Towne Centre) to 6:05 p.m. (final arrival at Towne Centre). The final departure from Isle of Palms is slated for 5:35 p.m.
Beach Reach will also operate on Labor Day.
