CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - The Charleston Area Regional Transit Authority wants to get more people riding the bus, so the agency is adding Wi-Fi on area buses.

Starting at 10 a.m. Thursday, Wi-Fi will be available to all 75 express and main line CARTA buses. The new service was made possible through a partnership with Verizon.

"CARTA passengers now have a clear advantage over automobile drivers when it comes to technology and connectivity," a news release says.

The agency also hopes it will also help to get some vehicles off the area's crowded roads.
