HAMMOND—Starting Monday, Jan. 3, the Tangipahoa Parish Transit System will again begin operating its fixed-route bus service inside the city limits of Hammond and Ponchatoula.

The cost is 50 cents per trip. Bus routes and the schedule for stops will be posted on each city’s website as well as on Tangipahoa.org, Miller said.
