Coast RTA resumed its regular bus service along Route 16
Georgetown to Myrtle Beach at 11 AM Friday when the bridges along
US 17 reopened between Georgetown and Pawleys Island. Coast RTA had
continued service from Myrtle Beach to Pawleys Island but could not
travel to Georgetown due to the bridge closure.
Service is expected to continue throughout the remainder of the
day at its regular schedule. Passengers are encouraged to monitor
the routes via Coast RTA's APP or by calling Customer Service for
updates at 843.488.0865.
Due to the bridge closures, Coast RTA was unable to run any of
its Route 16 Express routes Friday morning and therefore cancelled
its afternoon return trips.
Routes 16 and 16 Express are expected to operate as scheduled on
Saturday, December 30. However, Coast RTA officials do encourage
passengers to expect delays in anticipation of road conditions and
bridges freezing overnight.
Passengers are encouraged to stay tuned to local media, Coast
RTA's APP, its social media channels or to contact its Customer
Service at 843.488.0865 for updates.
