City funding taxi rides from bars - $23K in sales tax revenue will help MSU students get home safely

August 7, 2014

The Mississippi State University Student Association (MSUSA) is replacing its weekend nighttime bus routes between campus and Starkville nightlife hotspots with a free taxi service called “Cowbell Cabs,” reallocating funds from the city’s 2-percent restaurant sales tax.

MSUSA President Brett Harris presented the association’s plans for the sales tax funds Tuesday night, with aldermen approving $339,000 of these funds for MSUSA’s use. While this is an increase from last year’s allocation of $325,000, the extra funds are all going to Music Maker Productions and the Old Main Music Festival.
