Spartanburg's Public Transit System

The Spartanburg Area Regional Transit Agency (SPARTA) provides low-cost, convenient public bus service to all areas of our city, as well as several destinations outside the city limits. Whether you're a student on your way to class, a senior on your way to the grocery store, or a commuter on your way to work, we're here to serve you. SPARTA is going your way!

Temporary Bus Route Change

Due to the washing away of part of the road on Hayne St. the Westgate bus route will be temporarily changed as follows:

From Sibley Street, instead of turning left onto Hayne Street, the bus will continue on Sibley Street and turn left onto Old Greenville Road. At the stop sign at the intersection of Spring Street and Old Greenville Road, the bus will turn left onto Spring Street. The Westgate bus will come out under the train trestle, and turn right back onto Haney Street and continue the route from there. We are sorry for any inconvenience this has caused.
