Assumign you don't mind getting stabbed in the eye socket with a rusty syringe, Jackson offers a wonderfully efficient bus service, packed with colourful local crackheads and meth-lab scientists on their way to work. Occasional delays do occur when someone shoots the bus driver for the $8 he may have on him. Free bus travel is afforded in Jackson to anyone who carries a kinfe, -just wave it in the driver's face as you get on.
