Transportation to train station

We need to be picked up no later than 3:35 AM to get to the train station in North Charleston. We live in Mt. Pleasant. Does any service run at that time? Approximately cost??

Check with cab companies. I can't tell you the cost since it depends on the distance from where you live to the train station. Whenever I have an early flight I just bribe friends to take me.

I have used one before (to pick me up on IOP) and get me to the airport at about 4:30 am - I was a nervous wreck worrying that they would not show!! I no longer see the phone number for that one. I often see the vans of Mt. Pleasant Shuttle around town, you could try them.

I too, usually try to get someone I know to take me, if at all possible.

I'd be very afraid to use Yellow Cab or Express, having had traumas dealing with them. I have no experience with the Green Taxi (is it still operating?) or Black Cab Co.

I'm with the others. Pay a teenager in your neighborhood to do it. A real cab would cost at least $20 (based on experience from airport to town) and a teenager would consider $35 worth sitting up all nite for.

The last time I used a shuttle service (about 5 years ago) it was about $35 each way. (IOP to the airport) Probably more now.

Unfortunately, public transit from Mount Pleasant to the Amtrak Station in N. Charleston isn't operating at 3 am, however we do have public transit running to and from both the Airport and Greyhound station. Take either the Express or #40 bus to downtown and transfer to the Dorchester Airport Bus at Mary Street. Here is the information on the #40 bus busec.org/routes/trans-mt-pleasant-route-40/

You can now use Google Transit to plan trips on CARTA buses in the Charleston area.

Information that is useless to the OP is a waste of time. I don't know why you post things that are not related to what the OP needs.

BESIDES.... this post is 5 MONTHS old.
