STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) - A ceremony is being held Monday for expanding the Starkville-Mississippi State University Area Rapid Transit system.

The ceremony is being held at the Palmeiro Center on the Mississippi State campus.

Mississippi State President Mark Keenum says in a news release that the new service represents an expansion of an earlier shuttle system that primarily was focused on the MSU campus.

It will provide campus-to-city service between 7 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Friday. Two routes operate on Saturdays. The service is free.

The transit shuttles are wrapped in graphics of campus, city and Mississippi Department of Transportation images.

A transportation grant allowed the university and Starkville to become partners and expand the earlier campus system to now include campus and community routes.
