Winter Weather

In the event of snow or ice this winter, please travel with caution, allow buses more room to stop and navigate icy streets, and be prepared for possible delays if roads become slick. Please check alerts on the COMO Connect app for the latest information regarding bus service or possible delays. 

COMO Connect bus routes are all on first priority snow plow routes, and the city does not anticipate needing to adjust bus schedules during snow events unless roads become very dangerous or impassable. If road conditions worsen and buses need to adjust routes or schedules, customers will be notified on the COMO Connect app, Twitter, and Facebook.


Business Loop West Riders Impacted

During the I-70 bridges project, Columbia’s Transit System will provide the following for sections that are impacting pedestrian crossings to bus stops on the Business Loop:

Shuttle service from the Parkade neighborhood to connect with either the #9 Purple Route, #8 Light Green and #2A or #2B Gold Routes. While the #9 is the only route that services this area of the Business loop, the city felt it was unnecessarily burdensome to have the customer transfer from a van to the #9 and then make transfers to the other two routes that connect with the #9.

The shuttle will be a scheduled ride and must be called into the city’s ParaTransit line 573-874-7290 by 5 p.m. a day in advance. The customer must state that they want to schedule a ride for the Parkade North Shuttle.

The customer will not be charged for the shuttle ride, but will be charged normal fare when they board one of the three bus routes.

FREE rides on Election Day

COMO Connect will offer free bus rides on days that are considered an “Election Day” in Columbia. Election polls are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.; buses will run normal routes and normal operating hours which are 6:25 a.m. to 8 p.m.
