For more than a century, Starkville has been known as the college town home to Mississippi State University. With a campus of 23,000 students, faculty and staff, and a community of 25,000 residents, this rural town runs a bustling transit system. Starkville-MSU Area Rapid Transit (S.M.A.R.T) uses a combination of fixed-route and on-demand paratransit services while offering fare free rides. Their partnership with TransLoc supports S.M.A.R.T’s mission of providing safe, efficient, and reliable mobility options.
It’s a simple, very easy to track system, it doesn’t require the driver to do a whole lot in the bus, if anything, and that’s important to me because I don’t want them touching screens. I want them driving the bus.
