Parking Garage Opens Monday

Coast Transit authority will start offering free shuttle service Monday in downtown Gulfport. The new bus route coincides with the opening of CTA's new $6.6 million park and ride center across from the new federal courthouse on 15th Street.

CTA broke ground on the project in June. Officials say the four story garage will help alleviate the parking problems in downtown Gulfport, although some people say it's too far away from shops and other businesses.

CTA's new executive director, Kevin Coggin will join us Tuesday during Good Morning Mississippi to tell us more about the new park and ride project, and other transit options on the Mississippi coast.
