OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -- In response to the results of a survey of University of Mississippi students, the Oxford-University Transit Commission is considering extending bus service until 9 p.m. on all routes.
The Oxford Eagle reports the possible schedule change is in response to the results of a survey of University of Mississippi students.
Transit commissioners earlier this week considered budget scenarios for 2013-14 budget, which must be approved in January so it can be submitted to the Mississippi Department of Transportation by February to be eligible to apply for transportation grants. The grants pay 80 percent of capital costs and 50 percent of the operational costs of the public bus system.
To extend all bus routes to 9 p.m., the budget would rise to $1.85 million.
