COLUMBIA — Information about COMO Connect, the city's new public transit system, will be wheeled around in a bus. COMO Connect will send information to residents by way of a new information bus.

The COMO Connect Information Bus will be traveling around Columbia next week, in order to help residents better understand the city's new bus system, which will begin Aug. 4, according to a Columbia Public Works Department news release.

Staff will hand out maps, answer questions and address customers' concerns and provide complimentary one-on-one trip planning for those unsure of how to navigate the new system, the release said.

Anyone who visits the bus will be entered in a drawing to win free bus passes.

Next week, the bus will spend time at high-traffic areas in Columbia, such as the Columbia Mall, the parking lot of Lucky's Market and the Walgreens at the intersection of Nifong and Forum boulevards.

A complete list of stops can be found at the city's website. More information on the new system, tips on how to ride the bus and the upcoming COMO Connect classes can be found at the new COMO Connect website.

Supervising editor is Samuel Hardiman.
