CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - CARTA will officially suspend operations at 9 p.m. Wednesday night, but may provide limited evacuation services on Thursday.

Riders on the emergency circulator will be taken to the Charleston County Public Service Building. The county will provide transportation to regional shelters based on occupancy.

As conditions allow, CARTA will transport those with disabilities to an appropriate shelter.
