MU junior Chloe Myska is up and ready for class 30 minutes early every day — not to do homework or to get a cup of coffee, but to catch the bus from her apartment complex to campus.

This is the norm not only for Myska, but for a large population at MU. The added time and stress attached to catching the bus are a small indication of a bigger void in Columbia — a lack of public transportation that serves the entire community.
