Gold 2A/2B Detour

The Gold 2A and Gold 2B routes will be detouring to Rollins Street for the rest of the day July 4th due to street closures in downtown Columbia. For any questions or assistance, please call COMO Connect customer service at (573)874-7282.

July 4 Service


Most City offices will be closed Friday, July 3, 2015 in observance of Independence Day. COMO Connect city buses will still run on Friday, but there will be reduced hours and service equivalent to a “Saturday Schedule.” 

The reduced service schedule includes:

  • hours of operation being reduced to 10am-8pm (instead of the usual 6:25am-8pm).
  • no service on the #7 Dark Green route in south Columbia and no service on the #11 Aqua commuter route in north Columbia near Prathersville Rd.
  • reduced frequency of bus service at many bus stop locations (buses switch back and forth between nearby routes to offer consistent service to all routes during the reduced schedule, but with lower frequency at some bus stop locations)
  • Para-Transit service will be available

Saturday, July 4th

Buses will run on Saturday, July 4, 2015 on their normal Saturday schedule from 10am-8pm. There will also be the addition of one late night trip after the downtown fireworks show ends. City buses will be parked at the downtown Wabash Bus Station to take customers home on any of the city bus routes after the fireworks show lets out. Buses will all depart the station at 10:15pm for a single run of each route, including the #7DarkGreen and #11Aqua routes as needed. Buses will be clearly marked for their routes and staff will help direct customers at the station to the proper bus for this special set-up.

18 & under ride free!

COMO Connect is now completely FREE for riders 18 years of age and under!

With buses running from 6:25am-8pm Monday-Friday, new bus stops at each public high school, and easy live GPS bus tracking, students always have a ride to school and more options for a safe ride home. We even color coordinated the bus routes with your school colors for Battle High School, Hickman High School, and Rock Bridge High School!

If you’re in school, make sure to show the driver your school ID when boarding so they know your ride is free! Smaller children may not need to verify age if they are clearly under 18 years of age.

Under 18 and don’t attend a public school? That’s ok too! Just call COMO Connect’s customer service line and we’ll get you a Youth Ride Free pass.
