O.U.T. Public Bus System Thrives For Mississippi Residents In Oxford

The Oxford University Transit (O.U.T.) bus system is a free public transportation option for everyone with an Ole Miss student ID. The system has been in service for just over a year and has already experienced rapid growth. The bus system has expanded through new features like the G.P.S. trackers located on each bus, in order to give accurate predictions to pick up times. Recently, brand new busses were purchased that are larger than the initial size used in the inaugural season. The bus continues to run over the summer but there will be a change in the schedule for the 2011 summer term. For all those people without an Ole Miss student ID; there are several monthly membership options. The public bus provides transportation to and from campus spanning from Jackson Ave, Lamar, Old Taylor, Anderson and Hathorn Road. Oxford residents continue to rely on the public transportation service to get to and from campus, their homes and work. There are several employment opportunities for those seeking to become part of the growing organization. For more information on the bus system, here is the story.
