TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Tupelo is one step closer to getting public transit in the city.

City council members have tabled the bill for now, but approved in a 4 to 3 vote to set aside money for the plan.


The city discussed with an outside company last month to propose using passenger vans that would provide residents with transportation three times a week for a fee.

Residents would have the option to walk to the transit stops or schedule a pick-up in advance right from their home.
