SOA Community Shuttle

We are happy to announce that the SOA Community Shuttle is returning this year! Brought to you by Primrose School of Greenville, the SOA shuttle will work differently than last year. Instead of shuttle route stops the community will be able to use this Bus like Uber except it's free! Just text the number 864-275-6577 and your ride will come pick you up on Friday and Saturday evenings. You must be located in the Augusta Road neighborhood district and the shuttle can only be used for transportation to and from Summer on Augusta events. It will be helpful if you use the shuttle as a group to keep the waiting time to a minimum. We hope this makes coming to SOA a fun and safe experience. onlyonaugusta@gmail.com with questions and enjoy the ride!
