Shuttles & Drop-Offs Needed for Charleston tourists
CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) – As more and more hotels go up in the Charleston area, a new study suggests more shuttles and designated drop-off areas as a way to get visitors downtown.
The Post and Courier reports that a hotel study was completed last month by the City of Charleston.
It suggests that hotels outside the downtown area provide shuttles for guests and that there be designated places where those guests can be dropped off.
It also suggests that other communities and Charleston County develop shuttle systems to get visitors downtown to reduce the number of private vehicles in the congested historic district.
The newspaper reports that at least 20 new hotels and motels are either under construction or have been approved outside downtown Charleston.
