Ready to Hop In

GREENVILLE, S.C. –  Getting around the picturesque downtown Greenville is about to get easier.

Locally Epic is partnering with Rogers EV and Star EV to use an electric LSV vehicle that will pick up passengers along the Main Street area wiith room to hold up to five passengers.

“Transportation is a hot topic in our community right now,” explained Dave Ropes, Locally Epic’s chief marketing officer.  “Locally Epic is providing the perfect answer to streamlining pedestrian traffic and elevating local advertising opportunities.”

The “Hop-In” service will begin their six-month running season on May 10, a perfect coordination with the late spring and early summer events that draw people to enjoy downtown Greenville. The service will run daily from 11 a.m. to dusk.
