Introducing The Winning Photos!

Thousands of people ride Greenlink – Greenville County’s public transit system – every day. On October 10, 2018, professional and amateur photographers rode buses from 5:30 a.m. to the system’s close at 7:30 p.m. to capture riders' experiences and stories during a Greelink Fare Free day.  A jury led by Eli Warren with support from contest sponsors The Jolley Foundation, Greenville Center for Creative Arts, and the Piedmont Health Foundation selected three winners, and readers of GVLtoday chose a reader’s choice winner.  The winners and honorable mentions (can you hyperlink to jump below winners here?) give a glimpse into Greenlink.
