College of Charleston flocking to free bus privileges

College of Charleston students are unbuckling their seat belts and heading for the CARTA stop. Due to exorbitant gas prices in recent months, CofC students and faculty are employing their complimentary bus passes.

The Post and Courier reports:
It saves gas money — she now fills up about once every three weeks — and she reads and relaxes on the way to and from work. "My stress level has been cut in half," [College of Charleston staffer Chris Adams] said.

This year the college has sold significantly less parking permits and has distributed roughly 3,000 bus passes, an increase from past years. Gas prices are veering drivers off the road.
