Greenville is a small town, and as is often the case with smaller towns, the population isn't large or dense enough to support much in the way of a public transportation system. In fact, there are many rural roads around Greenville, which makes walking or biking to and from work a bit difficult. This makes for a very car-oriented town: 98.65% of residents commute to work by private automobile, and people often drive out of town for work, shopping, and other activities.
Being a small town, Greenville does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
