How to get around within Mississippi

The easiest way to explore Mississippi is by car, and in a lot of cases it is the only way to get around. Mississippi is also served by the Greyhound bus lines. It is not the most convenient public transportation, however, and you would have to be willing to wait for long periods of time for uncomfortable rides (especially if your destination is quite remote). The bus system is not very extensive and does not cover a lot of ground in Mississippi. There are a few Amtrak train stations still in use in the state: at the centre of Mississippi, the southeastern corner of the state, and along the Gulf Coast. Riding the train isn’t so bad but, aside from the limited stops, it is time-consuming. Only take the train if you are in no hurry to get to your destination. There’s no other public transportation available in Mississippi. That being said, cars can be booked in advance online so it will be waiting for you when you arrive. To be able to rent, you will need to be at least 25 years in age, have a valid driver’s license accepted in the U.S.A., and have a major credit card.
