MISSISSIPPI STATE UNIVERSITY and STARKVILLE, Miss. (WCBI) – A night out on the town may get a little easier and safer for Mississippi State students this fall. Beginning August 14th, Cowbell Cabs will provide free rides weekend nights between campus and Starkville’s nightspots. The cab service replaces transit buses that had been providing a similar service.
The Student Government Association is reallocating 23 thousand dollars from its share of the city tourism tax to pay for the service. Student leaders believe the service will better meet students needs.
