Up and Running?

Contrary to the prior post, CARTA has just recently gotten their new website with  google transit option up and running. Now you can plug in the address you're leaving from and going to in order to get the bus route info you need. However,  accuracy again is an issue. While I understand as William J. Hamilton of East Cooper CARTA Riders states that it's a huge project and there are bound to be some glitches, you would think they would update their list of bus stops rather than sending incorrect info to google transit. In fact, in response to one of my comments about them taking longer than announced to get google transit up and running Mr William answered, ‎"Nobody really understands CARTA. Many of our stops are matters of opinion." Bingo! And therein lies one of the biggest obstacles to being a regular commuter via CARTA. While I am encouraged that after more than two years of riding CARTA, they seem to be making some improvements, they still have a long way to go. Check out  the new website.
