Our Focus: Transportation & Mobility
Identifying solutions that will help Greenville County residents get where they need to go.
Identifying critical issues, catalyzing community action
Neighborhood leaders, health care providers, and nonprofit directors have told us that a lack of transportation is the number one obstacle to Greenville County residents seeking employment, health care, education, and more. The Piedmont Health Foundation aims to improve health by identifying critical issues and catalyzing community action.
Several recent studies and projects shed light on our transportation systems – and their challenges – so that we can understand how to improve mobility in our community.
