The UTC is a regional non-profit organization that educates and advocates for expanded and improved multi-modal transportation across Upstate South Carolina. The mission of the Upstate Transportation Coalition is to:
  • Educate community leaders and citizens on the important role public transportation plays in a growing community;
  • Disseminate information about public transportation and multi-modal growth initiatives throughout the Upstate region of South Carolina; and
  • Inform interested parties about specific things they can do to support public transportation.

The UTC meets the second Wednesday of the month at 9:00 a.m. at the Greenville Tech Buck Mickel Center for Corporate and Career Development, 216 S. Pleasantburg Drive, Greenville.
