Route 7 will have one hour frequencies. There will be a bus leaving the Conway Terminal and the Myrtle Beach Transfer Center at the top of every hour.

This route will have a bus departing the Myrtle Beach Transfer Center every 30 minutes at the top of the hour and at the half hour mark daily until 6 p.m.

The following routes/times saw summer service begin on July 1.

Routes 15 N (to 82nd and Grand Strand Hospital) and 15 S (to Market Common) A bus departs the Myrtle Beach Transfer Center every 30 minutes from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
