Travel and Transportation

Because the Charleston peninsula comprises a small area, which is filled with beautiful historic homes, many residents must park on the street. To avoid parking fines, we ask that festival-goers strictly observe parking limits or utilize the convenient parking lots and garages.

Visitors can easily get around town on the recently upgraded free to ride DASH shuttles featuring noticeable improvements in comfort, safety and efficiency. The free DASH shuttles offer convenient service along downtown loops, with handy stops near parking garages. Festival visitors are encouraged to use our full public transportation system, which includes both the DASH shuttles and CARTA buses. They follow convenient downtown routes near major festival sites, and all are ADA compliant and handicapped accessible. The regular fare is $2.00 for the CARTA Metro Buses with multi-ride passes starting at $7.00, while the DASH (Downtown Area Shuttles), are free for all residents and visitors.
