Columbia residents have a new way to get around town. The new downtown route for CoMo Connect began today, with the rest of the new system set to launch August 4. The downtown route, Red Line, replaces the 107 FastCat route for Columbia Transit. Dorothy Vetter waited to ride the new bus and was pleased with the outcome.
“Well, it goes to most of the places everyone needs to get to. It goes by all of the hospitals and I think it’s going to be a good route.”
There are 11 new routes for Columbia's new bus system. New signs on the bus offer a stop number as well as other buses that serve that location.
All new bus rides are free during the month of August. Using the DoubleMap bus tracking app, people can track the location of the bus as well as the route.
