Rapid Transit Study

 

The Rock HillYork County – Charlotte (RYC) Rapid Transit Study was completed in 2007 and identifies several needs and issues that transit could play a role in addressing. These issues include: worsening congestion, trip-making patterns for Rock HillYork County commuters to Charlotte, area land use patterns, mobility options for disadvantaged communities, and support of growing population and employment centers.

The primary product of the study is a Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA) which is a transit alternative which takes into account the transit modal technology (vehicle type) and corridor alignment (route). The LPA recommended Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) be implemented in the US 21 corridor from downtown Rock Hill to the I-485 Light Rail Station.
