A study that will recommend ways to improve bus travel in Hattiesburg is nearing completion. At an open house Tuesday night, residents looked over a draft of the Service Improvements Study for Hub City Transit.

It's investigating ways to make the system more efficient.

A final version of the study will be presented to the City Council for its approval within a couple of months.

"The overall goal is to move passengers at a faster rate, so that they can get to where they're going and actually serve more areas within the City of Hattiesburg," said Christopher Carr, transit specialist for the City of Hattiesburg.

The federally-funded study was initiated by the Hattiesburg Metropolitan Planning Organization.
