      MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - A direct shuttle is now available from Myrtle Beach International Airport to hotels and businesses along Ocean Boulevard and the Myrtle Beach Convention Center.

      The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reported Coast RTA began the direct shuttle route Saturday.

      The hours of operation are 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, and the cost is $7 one way and $10 round trip.

      A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held Monday at the airport.

      Coast RTA general manager Myers Rollins says the agency acquired the two buses used for the airport route with grants for $350,000 each. Each route will have fixed stops, including several large hotels on Ocean Boulevard.

      Officials say the service might be tweaked as they identify key times to pick up and drop off travelers.
