New bus route in Biloxi
Those who live along or have a business on Popp’s Ferry Road will have a new mode of transportation starting today when the Coast Transit Authority and the City of Biloxi launch a new bus route.
The new route will have continuous service from Pass and Popp’s Ferry Roads to Motsie Road, east of Cedar Lake. It will begin running today and will operate on 45 minute intervals Monday through Saturday from 6:47 a.m. to 6:37 p.m.
This new route will be called Route 32 and it will include stops like the Margaret Sherry Library, Belmont Garden Apartments, Virginia College, Cedar Lake Medical Offices, Santa Maria Del mar, and the Walmart Neighborhood Market. Ward 6 Councilman Kenny Glavan said, “We have been working on this a long time. After we have completed the improvements on Popp’s Ferry Road and our older, active citizens have been asking for this type of service and we owe it to them. They have given so much to our community. Now, we give back to them so that they can have the quality of life to enjoy some of the great things we have to do in our great city.”
Glavan says he’s pushed for this route since being elected several years ago.
