Got an opinion on transportation in Upstate? Go to this meeting


GPATS or the Greenville Pickens Area Transportation Study is asking the public to voice their opinions about transportation in the Upstate.

That includes roads, bridges, airports, railroads, biking or walking and jogging paths that they think are working well, not working well or aren’t safe.

GPATS is required by the federal government to do a study every decade. Keith Brockington, GPATS Transportation Manager said they are looking at about $18 million in federal funding to spend on area projects right now.

“We are seeing a need for more maintenance more bike, pedestrian green-ways. We could always do more swamp rabbit trail but road needs, congestion on Woodruff Rd and the state of roads remains the top priority,” he said.

Experts also said they want to know how the Greenlink bus system is serving communities in the Upstate and whether or not times and locations need to be changed.

The meeting will be held at the TD Convention Center from 6-8pm Wednesday September 7, 2016.
