Miss. State U. planning free transit system

Posted on October 17, 2011

COLUMBUS, Miss. — Mississippi State University and the city of Starkville are partnering on a grant proposal for a joint-transit system, The Dispatch reported. A 10-member transportation committee is aiming to revive and upgrade a transit system that hasn’t operated in five years and will apply for a Mississippi Department of Transportation public transit grant before March 2012.

The university’s initial push for an expanded transit system was meant to service students in town, but to apply for the MDOT grant the busing system must serve low-income neighborhoods, high-density areas and public facilities, as well as provide access to healthcare services.
