COLUMBIA — Marcy Luebbert, 57, of Columbia has cerebral palsy and she doesn’t have her own van. The city bus is her only transportation.
“This is my car,” Luebbbert said.
She lives alone and Roberta Mahannahhas been taking care of her for the past 20 years. Their favorite city bus route is the 103 Green Northeast Loop because it has everything on it: Bank, doctor, grocery stores and restaurants.
Sometimes, Luebbert and Mahannah like to ride the bus for fun. Thursday evening, after they ran some errands downtown, they took a bus trip before stopping at Walnut and Williams streets, where Luebbert lives.
Bill Bagley is the bus driver for the 103 Green Northeast Loop route, and it's his second shift of the day; he drives a school bus in the mornings. He knows Luebbert as a regular customer.
“Marcy’s a trip,” he said.
