I was thinking that if Amtrak DID offer thruway bus service between DNK and Augusta, the bus could stop at the Southeastern Stages & Greyhound station at the intersection of Greene & 12th Streets in downtown Augusta.

Looks like a backup move would be involved, a somewhat lengthy one at that, to get the CLT - CLB routed SS to make it to the Columbia Amtrak station. So the timings allocated for that segment needs to be augmented to account for such.

One wouldn't have to do that if they ever built the long proposed Fairwold connection to take the R line out of USCs campus. That would route the Ex SOU onto the ex SAL where they crossover on the north side of town.
