When it floods in Charleston, like it did last weekend, doors are opened for new and innovative modes of sustainable transportation to be utilized in our city. Check out these modes of transport our fellow Charlestonians used to get around over the weekend!
When the waters rise above bike tires, a routine city bike ride is no longer feasible.
Not only can normal modes of sustainable transportation be altered for flood conditions, extreme flooding allows for entirely new transportation to be seen across Charleston’s streets. Charleston resembles a southern Venice with kayakers, in place of the more Italian gondolas, through the City Market.

Next time it floods, don’t forget to try out some of these new methods of sustainable transportation! (… Don’t actually take that advice, flood waters aren’t sanitary kids.)
