The South Carolina DOT announces a $1.8 million bus livability grant for the city of Seneca to purchase buses for its rural transit service. By acquiring two fast-charge battery electric buses, Seneca will be able to offer a student transit route. Through a contract with Clemson Area Transit (CAT,) Seneca now provides three fare-free routes. The routes are business and residential circulators around town; an express service from Seneca to Clemson, four colleges, the AMTRAK station, and the Electric City Transit system in Anderson. Seneca also provides a dedicated fare-free service between Clemson and High Pointe, a residential and student housing complex.
