Greenville Transit

There's an article on Greenville News site about the trolley service changing, and questions being raised over the neighborhood routes. Does anyone know much about those routes? I think it's unfortunate that they're being forced to question them, but it makes me wonder: did they implement them poorly? Could the routes have been drawn better to reach more people? Or should they have run off of Main Street to make them a more viable/reliable "long" distance transportation option? 

When I lived deep in the West End, I always just opted to walk. However, I would have been more serious about using it, if I could have commuted on it.

When I lived at Main at Stone I never used the trolley. I just felt like it was inconvenient. It was much easier and quicker driving. The schedule of when and where the trolley runs is also confusing.

For one example - the "Arts district" route was a logical add-on but has seen low ridership.    The "Augusta Rd" route is popular and is almost certain to be kept in some form.

There were some issues with the Trolley Tracker app when 4 routes were created, because the apps were based on the previous premise of a single route path.   It should have improved by now.   Do you find the app confusing now, and what parts are confusing?   Granted, trying to describe what they do in a single map and text is confusing.
