MSU Campus Airport Pickup
The new GTRA Express Route is now picking up Mississippi State students on campus! We are able to come to your residential area (dormitories, greek houses, etc..) throughout the day.
Please follow these instructions for pickup:
Students need to call the Transit Services office and schedule their pickup time and location. We ask that all students call 24 hours in advance of their flight time. (Please note that our offices are closed on Sunday, so for any flights leaving on Monday, the reservation must be made on the previous Saturday or 48 hours in advance). In the case that you did not reach someone on the phone, please leave a detailed message with your name, flight time, pickup location, and phone number. You will receive a confirmation phone call from our office.
The GTRA Express Route will still be servicing the Mill and Walmart during regular schedules throughout the day. Please click here for that schedule: https://www.smart.msstate.edu/schedule-and-routes/gtr-express/
