COLUMBUS, Miss. – (WCBI) A two-day trip to Indiana leaves Columbus officials hoping a major new service for area residents will soon become a reality.
Mayor Robert Smith, City Attorney Jeff Turnage and others spent two days in Lawrence, Indiana meeting with Lawrence Transit owner Cliff Reddon about his year-old plans to open a similar service in Columbus within 60 to 90 days.

Routes tentatively have been approved, but Reddon has not yet settled on a fee schedule.

The city also will work with him on applying for state and federal grants. But city officials say they remain optimistic that Reddon will soon kick off service here with four buses.The city will lease Reddon space to store the buses at the city’s Public Works barn. The only cost to local taxpayers is marking the bus stops.
