Where do I get the bus from?

Unfortunately, there’s no bus that runs directly from CLT to Greenville SC. You will first need to take the Number 5 bus into downtown Charlotte and then walk to either the Pilot Travel Center gas station or the Exxon Gas Station to get the Wanda Coach.

Convenience

Taking the bus is the slowest and least convenient transfer option. You may need to wait up to 21 hours for a bus as they only run twice a day in the mornings and you will need to make a change in Charlotte city centre, adding more time to your journey. Plus, although there is some storage on the Wanda Coach for large luggage items, there’s no space on the Number 5 bus, so you will need to travel light.

Editor’s Note

If you're travelling with a group of three to four people, I suggest sharing a taxi and splitting the cost. The price will be close to that of the multiple tickets for the bus, but it's much more convenient.

Useful Tips

There's an extra charge for oversized luggage of $10 (€9) to $20 (€18) on the Wanda bus.
Book your Wanda Coach tickets online in advance to save money.
Be sure to arrive at least 15 minutes before the bus is due to depart.

Although taking a Charlotte airport taxi is the more expensive transfer option, I believe the convenience outweighs the cost. Plus, if you're travelling in a group of 4 people, the cost of a taxi per person will be around the same as purchasing four bus tickets.
