The City of Vicksburg and the Vicksburg Convention and Visitors Bureau have partnered together to purchase and utilize a 42-passenger shuttle bus. This bus will be unveiled on Thursday across the street from the Vicksburg Convention Center.

The bus will be used for providing transportation to and from events and tourist destinations for the clients at the Vicksburg Convention Center.

It will also be used for programs provided by the Senior Center, and tour events or special events sponsored by the Vicksburg Convention and Visitors Bureau.

The bus has been wrapped to be a great marketing tool for the city. 

Signs First in Vicksburg designed the bus to be an expression of the sites, events and images of the city.    

Mayor George Flaggs, Jr. spoke about his excitement and the ways the shuttle bus will increase tourism.

“This bus will greatly enhance tourism in our city and provide transportation for visitors of our city who are attending conferences and conventions," said Flaggs. "We are also proud that our Senior Center will have access to the bus to travel to various events and activities."
