TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Tupelo city leaders enjoyed a bus ride throughout the city on the proposed bus routes for the city's potential public transit system.

Last week, the city was presented a plan with three fixed routes throughout the city. The final details of the plan are still being discussed.

Councilwoman Nettie Davis says it's a project the council has been working on for more than 10 years.

"I think it's very important," she said. "Tupelo is one of the leaders in the area and I think there's a great need for it. I know many of the people that live in my ward go to work and they don't have a way to go, so they have to walk or get an alternate route to get to work. And they are going to be really excited about this. We're going to have to boost it and get people involved in it," she said.
