Kershaw Connect launches
Kershaw Connect Bus
A KershawConnect bus stands ready for one of its first runs in front of the Elgin IGA. Fares for the bus, operated by the Santee Wateree Regional Transportation Authority, are $1 for each one-way trip from Elgin to east Camden or from east Camden back to Elgin.
Thursday marked the first run of the new Kershaw Connect bus service in Kershaw County. Operated by the Santee Wateree Regional Transportation Authority (SWRTA), the new service is the result of CARES Act funding in the wake of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. LiveWell Kershaw led the effort to obtain both public input and the funding to needed to create the service.
