The Lee County Transit Task Force was successful in getting transit included in the Capital Penny Sales Tax that was passing during the 2012 Election. As a result, in 2015, the SWRTA begun providing Fixed Route Services and a Commuter Route for the citizens of Lee County. The Coalition selected a logo and named their transit services, the Lee County Transit (LCT). SWRTA was successful in securing federal funds to purchase three cutaway buses and Lee County identified the required local match for the purchase.
The Office for the LCT is located at 5 Courthouse Square, Bishopville. The citizens now have somewhere local to call or stop by for information concerning the services. You may contact the LCT office at 803-692-4022 or 803-692-4016. The alternate line is 803-775-9347.
The services offer three loops, operating five days per week in the city of Bishopville and a commuter route from Bishopville to Lynchburg on one day per week. The current fare for the Lee County Transit is Fare Free. LCT also offers complimentary ADA Para-Transit.
The hours of operation is 6:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. (Loops operating in Bishopville) and from 7:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. (Loop operating from Bishopville to Lynchburg)
