In Biloxi MS.most if not all Casinos will provide shuttle bus services .
At your hotel ,you can call the Casino of your choice and the casino bus will pick you up ,and when you want to go back to the hotel the shuttle bus is ready ,(or will be soon ) to drive you back to your hotel.
There is no charge , but of course a tip for the driver is always appreciated.
During Hurricane Katrina, the bridge between Biloxi and Ocean Springs on US Hwy 90 was destroyed. Big chunks of it were knocked into the water like dominoes. Now the shortest way between the towns is to take I-110 north out of Biloxi to D'Iberville then follow Lemoyne west to Washington. Washington takes you into Ocean springs. The other alternative it to take I-110 to I-10 then go east. Take the Washington St Exit all the way into Ocean Springs. What used to be about 1 mile over the bridge is now at least 5 miles via Lemoyne or 7-8 miles on I-10.
A new bridge was completed in 2007, after a two-year closure.
Taxis in Biloxi are still very expensive. A ride from the Gulfport airport to downtown (about 15 miles) will run you $33... you can rent a car for an entire day for much less than that ($20 a day Mon-Thurs for a cheapy from Enterprise). I guess that's just their way of ripping off the tourists to pay to rebuild the south. Go south.
Gulfport/Biloxi Airport (GPT) is under major renovations and resembles the airport in Beruit, or some other war-town city. It is a tiny airport with just 6 gates and 1 restaurant (the Gulf Grille). Luckily, it offers free wireless internet, enabling me to write this tip! There are only 5 airlines, serving just 8 major airports in the region (including Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, and Tampa).
The airport was originally built as a World War II training base, and it was turned over to the city in 1949. Later the Mississippi Air National Guard established a Combat Readiness Training Center, one of only four nationwide.
Parking is just $7 a day for long term and $9 a day for short term. There are a few rental car companies located on the airport grounds, but I prefer Enterprise which is a few miles away...just call them at 1 (800) 736-8222 for a ride to their rental counter. The airport is just off Hwy-49 about one mile south of Interstate-10.
By road : The Mississippi Gulf is approximately an hour’s drive from New Orleans, Louisiana to the west and Mobile, Alabama to the east. You can take interstates I-55, I-65, or I-85 to I-10, then travel down I-110 or State Highway 49 which will bring you on to US Highway 90, which runs along the Gulf waters.
By Air : The Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport has many flights by 5 airlines and is on the Mississippi Gulf Coast midway between New Orleans (Louisiana) and Mobile (Alabama) located in Gulfport, one mile South of l-10, exit 34A U.S. 49 South.
By Train : Amtrak Train Stops at Biloxi, Gulfport, Pascagoula and Bay St Louis.
