Columbia Transit bus routes to change in August

COLUMBIA — The new changes to Columbia Transit bus routes are set to begin Aug. 2. The major improvements to the bus system include new routes and stops at more Columbia businesses so residents have greater access to job opportunities.

Other changes include extending service farther to north, east and west Columbia. Also, the orange route will be rerouted to south Columbia because the route had difficulties with traffic congestion.

Saturday service will now mirror the weekday schedule to lessen confusion. This expanded service will also aid Para-Transit riders, as more riders will now qualify for service inside the American Disabilities Act area, which is within three-quarters of a mile from any fixed route.

The 106/Brown Route, which runs through downtown and MU will not change until Aug. 16 because of construction on several streets running through campus.

Go to the city's website, for updated maps and schedules; search GoNewRoutes. Also, Wabash Station at 126 N. Tenth St. and all bus shelters will post maps and schedules.

For more information, contact Columbia Transit at 874-7282 or e-mail Columbia Transit staff at
