"Are They Coming to Jonesboro?"

JONESBORO-- They can be seen in every corner of Jonesboro; Billboards that pose the question " Are They Coming to Jonesboro?"

We decided that to find out who they are, and why they are coming.

What we found is that the billboards are a campaign by the City of Jonesboro to raise awareness of the J.E.T.S. program, the Jonesboro Economical Transport System.

The city council will vote on whether or not to move forward with the program, which will bring mass transit to Northeast Arkansas for the first time.

The vote will be the first of many steps in getting the approval for the new system.
