New Picayune Station

2 posts in this topic

The city of Picayune just had a ribbon cutting on their brand new "intermodal transportation center", named Picayune Station. The old open-air station was pretty much just a picnic shelter. Amtrak stops daily there, and the city is requesting service from Greyhound. They also have plans to add a small railroad museum, and perhaps an airline ticket booking agency in the station. FWIW, i don't think that Pearl River County has local bus service, so you still need a car or cab to get to the train station.

This is excellent news. If a small city like Picayune is making an investment in something other than the automobile, it shows smart thinking for the future. How much has Picayune grown since Katrina?
