COLUMBIA — As part of the CoMO Connect project to improve the city's bus system, Columbia Transit proposed three new downtown bus routes during a meeting of the Downtown Community Improvement District Board on Nov. 12. The routes vary in their coverage of the downtown area and MU, and are intended to improve the current FastCat Express bus services.
