PDRTA is pleased to announce a new convenience for its
fixed route riders on the Florence Transit System, Myrtle Beach
Commuters, and Chesterfield-Cheraw-Bennettsville
Through a partnership with Piggly Wiggly stores, PDRTA transit
riders can now buy fare cards at their local Piggly Wiggly. Passes
will be available at the Customer Service desk, and passengers can
pay for them with cash, credit/debit cards, or Greenbax.
"We're very happy to be partnering with Piggly Wiggly to bring
this added convenience to our riders," said PDRTA Executive
Director Janice Baroody. "Fare cards are cheaper than paying cash,
and being able to buy them at The Pig means it's easier than ever
for our customers to use our service. We'll still be selling fare
cards online and at our office, but since most of our bus routes
stop at a Piggly Wiggly store, our riders will have more options.
And since riders can pay with Greenbax, they can save even
All 3 Florence Piggly Wiggly stores sell fare cards, as do
Piggly Wiggly stores in Lake City, Mullins, Chesterfield,
Bennettsville, and Hartsville.
