CARTA forms two new North Area Shuttle routes

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The Charleston Area Regional Transportation Authority announced Wednesday the formation of two new routes that will make traveling to major North Charleston destinations easier.

The new North Area Shuttle (NASH) routes will offer services to areas such as the Charleston International Airport, Boeing, Tanger Outlets, Park Circle, and many others.

"The new routes are distinct, but equally useful," said CARTA Board Chairman Elliot Summey. "We're extremely excited about their convenience and the opportunities they'll afford all riders, both residents and visitors."

NASH was launched in June 2013 as a way to link hotels, restaurants, retail and entertainment venues in North Charleston.

CARTA also announced they have formed a partnership with Tanger Outlet Centers, Inc. This new partnership joins existing NASH partners Boeing and the City of North Charleston.

Below are the two new NASH routes:Route 105

NASH Circulator

  • A free, 16-stop circulator that runs on a looped route near Charleston International Airport and connects Boeing and Tanger Outlets to the Park Circle and Old Village areas of North Charleston
  • The service runs seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., about every 30 minutes.
Route 4 NASH Express
  • A $3 route similar to other CARTA express services. Stops include Charleston International Airport, North Charleston Visitor Center, Tanger Outlets and the Charleston Visitor Center downtown. 
  • Service frequency is about an hour, which means a trip from the airport to downtown - or vice versa - takes approximately 30 minutes.
