Bus Service Evaluation Survey

What’s Happening

To ensure that the COMO bus system provides efficient service and meets the needs of community members, the City of Columbia is carrying out the COMO Bus Service Evaluation. 

The evaluation began during the winter of 2016 and will continue through this spring. During the process, the evaluation team studied the steps taken to implement the recommendations of the 2014 COMO Connect Project.

This survey is available through May 5, 2017 and made easy by Digicate®.

Today, COMO Connect relies on two core connector routes (Black Route #1 and Gold Route #2) with service every 30 minutes and buses traveling in both directions. It also offers nine smaller neighborhood routes with service every 30-40 minutes and a bus traveling in only one direction. 

Use this survey to offer your opinion of potential transit improvement scenarios.

Flex Routes: These provide curb-to-curb service in areas with lower transit ridership (flex zones). Riders would call COMO Connect 24 hours in advance for rides within a zone and could transfer to fixed routes. Fares would cost more than fixed route service. What's your opinion of flex routes? Select 1 response. Then touch the NEXT button.

Route through MU Campus: The new route would allow buses to bypass heavy pedestrian traffic on Rollins Streets. It would also help buses avoid construction projects that impact Hitt Street. What is your opinion of the new route through MU Campus? Select 1 response. Then touch the NEXT button.

Modified Loops Scenario: This scenario costs about as much as today's system but simplifies it by adding flex routes, changing the alignment of Gold Route #2, and dividing Black Route #1 into two separate routes. It responds to congestion issues and provides 30-minute service. What is your opinion of it? Select 1 response. Then touch the NEXT button.

Trunk Routes Scenario: This costs about as much as today's system but changes it from 1-way loops to 2-way, straighter routes that use the Wabash Station at 10th and Ash Streets, connect to MU Campus, and include flex routes. It provides 30-minute service, improves transfers between routes, and helps with bus driver shift changes. What is your opinion of this scenario? Select 1 response. Then touch the NEXT button.

High Frequency Scenario: This costs about $800,00 more than today's system. It has some of the same features as the Trunk Route Scenario, e.g. 2-way routes, but it also provides 20-minute service. No flex routes are included. What is your opinion of this scenario? Select 1 response. Then touch the NEXT button.
