The COMET is now operating UofSC Transit under contract to the University of South Carolina.  UofSC Transit operates on 10 day time routes and two evening routes to make your life easy!  Best of all, the ride is free! To board UofSC Transit, look for the Garnet UofSC Transit Stop sign located at over 30 locations around campus.

Track your route in real time with an app or find transit stops using the Campus Map.  Routes offered are listed below.
