CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - A series of public meetings is being held to consider transportation alternatives for the gridlocked Interstate 26 corridor between Summerville and Charleston.

The meetings are to gather suggestions on possible alternatives for people driving on the interstate which is often jammed during the morning and evening rush hours.

The Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester Council of Governments started the study of alternatives that might include everything from bus rapid transit to high speed rail and even magnetic levitation trains such as those used in Japan and China.

The first meeting was held Monday in Charleston.

A second is Tuesday at Bethany United Methodist Church in Summerville and a third on Wednesday at the Military Magnet School in North Charleston. Both meetings begin at 6 p.m.
