Bus Route Changes
Proposed Changes to Routes 504, 501, and 507
Greenlink is seeking public comment on proposed route changes to Route 504 (Anderson), Route 501 (Pleasantburg) and Route 507 (Augusta). The proposed changes are outlined below.
Route 504 (Anderson)
Anderson continues to face on-time performance issues, causing a late return to the Transit Center. As a result, customers miss their connections to another route and must wait an hour for a transfer.
Route 501 (Pleasantburg)
Greenlink has received requests to provide service to the Phoenix Center and the Arcadia Hills neighborhood. In order to add bus service to these destinations, Greenlink must remove Route 501’s service in the Pleasant Valley area, which will require a change to Route 507 (Augusta Road).
Route 507 (Augusta)
Stops in the Pleasant Valley neighborhood will be removed from Route 501 and added to Route 507.
Greenlink is seeking public input through May 19, 2020, on all of the proposed changes. Due to operational changes necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic, public feedback can be provided via the following channels:
Online Survey: This survey will remain open for submissions April 14 – May 19. https://publicinput.com/H105
Email: Any comments can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org through May 19.

Effective Friday, April 3, 2020
Due to safety concerns, Greenlink temporarily removed and relocated Stop 1012: Rebecca St & Hall St on Route 501: Pleasantburg.
Effective Friday, April 3, customers using this stop should now plan to get on and off the bus at a new stop installed at the intersection of Clark St & Hilton St.
Effective Thursday, January 2, 2020
1. All buses already inside the Transit Center will depart at the scheduled departure time. Buses will not wait on all routes to arrive before departing. However, the last trip of the night will wait for all connections so that customers can transfer to complete their trip.
2. Buses that arrive late to the Transit Center will depart as soon as all existing passengers disembark and new passengers complete the boarding process.
3. Customers are not guaranteed connections and will not receive complimentary passes for missed transfers.
This temporary policy will help to better evaluate which routes are routinely arriving late at the Transit Center. Staff will use the data to make future recommendations.
Effective Thursday, August 29, 2019
Due to safety concerns, Stop 1397: Laurens Rd & Knollwood Dr is being relocated approximately 800 ft. north towards the intersection of Laurens Rd & Innovation Dr.
Effective Saturday, August 3, 2019
In an effort to maintain on-time performance with Greenlink’s schedules, the following stops will be serviced by Route 601: Simpsonville Connector instead of Route 510: Laurens beginning August 3, 2019. Customers boarding at these stops can transfer to Route 510: Laurens at the identified transfer location at 25 Old Mill Road. Customers should make sure they let the driver know that they need to transfer between routes 510 and 601.

Route Changes effective July 1, 2019
The results of the Comprehensive Operational Analysis (COA), which were unveiled in August 2017, included recommendations for a number of bus route changes. As a result, Greenlink held 16 community meetings throughout the months of October and November 2017, sharing information about the proposed route changes and giving the public an opportunity to provide input on the route designs.
Feedback received at the community meetings were incorporated into the routes and the Greenville Transit Authority Board of Directors voted to adopt the new routes in December 2017. The changes will go into effect July 1, 2019.
Maps of the new route designs are listed below. The routes are also viewable in the FindGreenlink app and on TrackGreenlink.com. For questions or comments, call 864-467-4544.
