The Pee Dee Regional Transportation Authority (PDRTA) Reindeer
Shuttle will provide Saturday service between Magnolia and Florence
Malls between November 27 and December 18, 2010. The shopping
shuttles were first implemented in 2008 and have been very popular
in helping relieve traffic congestion during the busy holiday
According to PDRTA Executive Director Janice Baroody, "Traffic
is always so terrible during the holidays and the Reindeer Shuttle
make it so much easier for people to park and do their shopping."
And this year, the colorful green and red trolleys will have boxes
for anyone who would like to make a donation to the Manna Home Food
Bank. Baroody continued, "At PDRTA we like to do our part for the
community and this year we are offering free rides to anyone
bringing a donation for the Manna Home Food Bank."
In addition, on Saturday, December 11th between 11:00 a.m. and
1:00 p.m. PDRTA will be at the Florence Mall Piggly Wiggly with
music, prizes and special appearances by Mr. Pig and Rudy the
Reindeer. Make a donation to the Manna Home Food Bank at the
display and enter to win a holiday basket of goodies.
The Reindeer Shuttle will run between the Florence and Magnolia
Malls every 30 minutes between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. each
Saturday until December 18. The one-way fare is only $.50 cents and
$.25 for Medicare card holders, senior citizens (56 and older) and
persons with disabilities. Children ages 2-10 ride for $.25 and
