IOP Beach Shuttle
Starting Memorial Day Weekend, you can #RideCARTA to the Isle of Palms! Hop on the NEW Beach Reach Shuttle at Mount Pleasant Towne Centre and park for free -- or connect via CARTA Routes 40/42 -- to be dropped off steps away from the sand!
The Beach Reach Shuttle will operate weekends and holidays between Memorial Day and Labor Day from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
The hourly service, which launches May 28, will provide a new connection between Mount Pleasant and Isle of Palms. Landside Beach Reach parking will be located along Market Center Boulevard in Mount Pleasant Towne Center. The seasonal park-and-ride shuttle will tie-in directly to the existing CARTA system at stop No. 715, a sheltered amenity located near the Belk Men’s store. Connections to Route 40 Mount Pleasant and Route 42 Wando Circulator will be available.
The on-island Beach Reach stop is located at the 14th Avenue and Ocean Boulevard beach access path.
