Coast RTA Expanding Service to Parts of Horry and Georgetown Counties
Coast RTA is expanding their service to more rural areas.
Coast RTA is expanding their service to more rural areas. Right now the planned expansion is the second of four total phases. The first phase was re-starting service to the North Myrtle Beach area. Now, this phase will extend a route from the Market Common district to Tidelands Hospital in Murrells Inlet. Service will also expand to Georgetown between Andrews, and down Highway 17 to the Horry-Georgetown Technical College campus in Georgetown. Coast RTA is also hoping for a new facility in the future, which would include renovating the current facility on Third Avenue in Conway. Leaders have spoken to the Horry County Council and have requested about 1.2 million dollars to put toward the project with a goal of finishing it in 2023.
