Dear Editor,

As a former resident of Pontotoc County, I was delighted to hear that the city and county are working together to build a public transportation system.

Public transportation is a major program to help communities thrive and grow. With the many new businesses coming into the city, student enrollment at the university and patient needs for both hospitals, residents must have a reliable way to commute to and from work, school, appointments, shopping or just to go visit a friend.

Congratulations city of Ada and Pontotoc County for moving forward with this important, much-needed program.
