JACKSON, Tenn.- Good news for some riders of city buses in Jackson as the city council is considering building new shelters at some more popular spots.

One of the areas is along South Highland in South Jackson. The shelters would offer cover and a place to sit.

The Jackson Transit Authority, which operates the buses, says in the last few years it has seen an increase in riders.

Riders during the last fiscal year totaled more than 680,000, which is up 50,000 from the year before.

The proposal for funding new shelters will be discussed during next month's city council meeting.
