WHAT: Commuters in Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester counties will have access to a better trip to work with the launch of the Lowcountry Go commuter services program. Lowcountry Go, or Low Go, connects tri-county residents with real commuting solutions such as carpools, vanpools, emergency rides home and more via a website, web app and BCDCOG staff guidance. The program launches this week.
WHEN: Tuesday, Feb. 27, 10 a.m.
WHO: Event speakers:
· Ron Mitchum, BCDCOG Executive Director
· Doug Frate, SCDOT Deputy Secretary of Intermodal & Freight Programs
· Anton J. Gunn, MUSC Health Chief Diversity Officer & Executive Director of Community Health Innovation
· Vic Rawl, Charleston County Council Chairman
WHY: A regional partnership between BCDCOG, SCDOT, the Federal Highway Administration, large employers and stakeholders, Lowcountry Go’s goal is to reduce congestion on area roads and improve quality of life. Non-fun fact: a recent regional survey found 90 percent of workers commute alone.
NOTE: Parking is available in the President Street and Jonathan Lucas Street garages.
