For Immediate Release
Conway, SC --Road closures and
conditions during post-Florence have caused traffic congestion for
anyone needing to travel to Myrtle Beach from Conway, including
Coast RTA. On Friday, Coast RTA announced service modifications for
its fixed routes which are scheduled to begin on September
Coast RTA will
continue to provide limited service similar to that of the last two
days. Service on Routes 10, 15 North, and 15 South operate on full
Limited service on Route 16 and 16X
will remain, as well, with service between Georgetown and Myrtle
Beach. Departures in the morning are 6 AM and 7:30 AM from
Georgetown. There will only be a 3:30 PM departure on 16X from 79th
Avenue North and 16 will run its normal schedule.
Passengers are advised that the 6:30 PM
departure on Route 16 will terminate in Conway at about 8:30
However, Route 7 does have changes.
There will be only one departure from Conway. That departure will
take place at 7 AM from the Conway Terminal to Myrtle Beach. Due to
traffic congestion and road closures, Route 7 will then operate
between Myrtle Beach and Coastal Carolina University ONLY
throughout the rest of the day. Route 7's last departure from
Myrtle Beach to Conway will be at 8 PM.
Traffic to depart Conway for Myrtle
Beach is limited to US 501 Business; thus, causing 1-3-plus hours
delays to cross the Waccamaw River.

service. Coast RTA apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause
but is striving to provide the best service it can given the road
