More residents getting SMART - Buses see more riders during second week

January 17, 2014

Mississippi State University transportation staff are reporting growing usage of the Starkville-MSU Area Rapid Transit (SMART) shuttle system since students returned to campus Monday.

SMART is in its second week of operation, but MSU Parking Operations Director Mike Harris said only one bus ran on each of its seven routes in the first week. Activation of the full fleet of 21 buses coincided with the first day of MSU classes, he said, because his staff anticipated that students’ arrival would drive up ridership. So far, he said, that prediction seems to be coming true.
