MU students take advantage of the new bus route offered. It took them to the Columbia Farmers' Market.

COLUMBIA — The Columbia Farmers' Market bus ran for the first time Saturday.

The route, which runs with stops between the MU Student Center and the market, was funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture through the Farmers' Market Promotion Program.

Between 9:35 a.m. and 10:25 a.m., six MU students rode the bus, and 13 people rode the bus throughout the day, said Dale Lynn, a transportation supervisor with the city.

"We think it'll pick up," Lynn said. He said he expected low numbers because of the Easter holiday.

Service will continue every Saturday through the end of October. A ride costs $1.50, the same price as all city buses.
