HUB CITY TRANSIT MASTER PLAN
The Hub City Transit Master Plan will serve as a roadmap for improving public transit in the Hattiesburg Urbanized area over the next five to 10 years. This includes Hattiesburg, Petal and surrounding portions of Forrest and Lamar counties.
The plan will take a comprehensive look at local needs and recommend both short- and long-range strategies to increase ridership and improve the rider experience. To learn more, check out plan details and a list of frequently asked questions – visit, hubcitytransit.com/masterplan.
