transit-friendly, both past and present
Mississippi Avenue is located within the Boise Neighborhood. Comprised of residences, schools, parks, and businesses, the community has always enjoyed the ability to travel from one part of the city to the other with the help of public transit, close freeways, and major bike routes. The Max Lightrail and I-5 freeway is located just 1/2 mile to the west, while the Williams and Vancouver major bike routes are just 1/2 mile to the east. Mississippi Avenue itself is home to the 4 Bus Route.
