The first- and last-mile connection to a transit stop is a critical ingredient to the success of any public transportation system. When people commute from their homes to a transit stop, they must decide how they will get there. Will people drive their cars and find parking, or walk or bike to the stop? If biking, is there a way to carry and store bicycles?

Greenlink’s commitment to multimodal transportation began with installation of bike racks on all Greenlink buses to make commuting easier for bicycle riders. All fixed route buses and downtown trolleys feature racks with two easy-to-load bicycle positions.


In 2012, Greenville Transit Authority/Greenlink applied for federal transportation funds on behalf of Upstate Forever to launch the Greenville B-cycle bike sharing program. Upstate Forever today operates and maintains nine B-Cycle stations with 45 bikes, providing community members and visitors with an active way to get around town. 


Also in 2012, Greenlink launched a bike locker rental program, installing BikeLids along Richardson Street outside the Greenlink Transit Center and in the Spring Street Garage in downtown Greenville. 

Bike Station

As Greenville’s multimodal movement grows, Greenlink is poised to be at the center of it all. Located in the heart of the central business district, the Greenlink Transit Center offers easy access to business and government, entertainment options and leisure activities. The transit center is two blocks from the Peace Center for the Performing Arts and the Swamp Rabbit Trail, and is convenient to downtown shopping, dining, entertainment, overnight accommodations, and housing. The third and final phase of the transit center's renovation plan calls for the creation of a bike station that supports additional modality for commuting residents and visitors to the city. The Greenlink bike station will include triple-stack racks able to accommodate up to 78 bicycles, along with lockers, showers and changing facilities.
