MURRAY – The Murray-Calloway County Transit Authority Board of Directors discussed bus schedules for Thanksgiving week during this month’s meeting on Tuesday.

According to MCTA office manager Nikita Turner, busses will not run on Thanksgiving Day through Sat., Nov. 27, but, dialysis and Medicaid transportation will still run.
