SMART routes, Paratransit return with limited service

As the Starkville-MSU Area Rapid Transit or SMART system continues to maneuver through COVID-19 and evaluate best ways to protect transit riders and staff, the routes will be returning with limited service (one Bus Per Route) for the following routes: Boardtown North, Boardtown South, Old Main, Highway 12, Sportsplex and Paratransit. Routes will run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and will be limited to nine passengers per bus. Routes will stop from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for cleaning and spraying of all buses. GTR (Airport) will run based on flight schedule Monday through Sunday.

The SMART system asks for patience through this process. For questions, please call 662-325-7594 or 662-325-3526. For more information, visit
