SCDOT Smart Ride Project


Thank you for your interest in the SmartRide commuter services. SmartRide provides a convenient and a very cost effective option for commuters who desire transportation to downtown Columbia during the workweek.

Now in its fourth year of service, the SmartRide Commuter-Focused Transit Program is a partnership between SCDOT, the Newberry County Council on Aging, local communities, businesses, and conscientious commuters who want a viable alternative to the traditional single-occupant vehicle commute. Commuters are invited to try either of the SmartRide commuter transit services available into the downtown Columbia area.

Beginning January 2, 2009,the Newberry Express SmartRide, operated by the
Central Midlands Regional Transit Authority, will originate out of Newberry in the Northwest area with stops in Newberry, Little Mountain and Chapin. There will be two separate runs that operate Monday through Friday. The cost for the Newberry Express SmartRide is $30.00 per week (weekly pass) or $4.00 for a one-way trip.
