JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi’s capital city is receiving a $1 million federal grant to improve a bus line.

The Federal Transit Administration announced grants Tuesday to several U.S. communities that are developing new mass transit systems, or expanding ones already in place.

Jackson is receiving money to reshape development along a bus system running from the Fondren neighborhood through downtown and to Jackson State University.
