Florence partners with PDRTA to offer free evening rides downtown


The City of Florence and the Pee Dee Regional Transit Authority (PDRTA) have begun offering an evening shuttle on Monday known as Downtown Connect.

The shuttle will provide free transportation from the downtown Historic District to eight hotels along the Hospitality Drive and Radio Drive near the Florence Civic Center.

Officials said Downtown Connect provides a convenient free service to all visitors to enjoy the freedom to explore downtown and dine at more than a dozen independently-owned restaurants located in the downtown area without having to move their cars.

Service runs from 5:30 p.m. until 10:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 5:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. on Fridays.

Pickup will be in designated areas at the hotels with drop-off points in downtown Florence.

The shuttle will run every 30 minutes. Click here for more information.
