GPATS Transportation Survey

Greenville-Pickens Area Transportation Study (GPATS) has begun a five-year update of the 2030 Long Range Transportation Plan, which was completed in 2007. The survey was developed to get feedback from residents regarding their transportation priorities, including road projects, intersections, bicycle and pedestrian facilities, and public transit. Please take a few minutes to fill out our transportation survey here:  Click Here To Take The Survey.


Public support of greenways and other non-motorized transportation facilities like bicycle lanes, bike centers, and improved bus routes goes a long way in planning the future development of the Upstate.
