Greenlink has purchased four new electric buses, made by local manufacturer Proterra to replace four of the old diesel buses. This bus was on display at the Imagine Upstate festival. They are expected to go into service next month after training and the charging station is ready.

Multimodal Transportation

Multimodal trip planning is just a big term for having the choice of walking, biking or bus or to combine them into a single schedule.    Since the Greenlink buses can carry up to 2 bikes on the front bike rack, a trip planner might suggest a few extra blocks in a different direction to catch a better schedule on a different route.   There is a new trip planner for Greenville that knows about bus and bicycle routing to give a preference to bike friendly roads such as bike lanes, sharrows, etc.
