Columbia Transit bus routes will run extended hours until 8:45pm on Tuesday, Nov. 6. Fixed route service regularly ends by 6:30pm Monday through Wednesday. This is the first year extended hours have been offered to aid voters.
"We've extended the hours to give riders more opportunity to travel to and from their polling place on Election Day," said Transportation Administrator, Drew Brooks. "You vote; we'll drive."
There are 36 local polling places serviced by Columbia Transit routes, including the two central polling locations, Boone County Government Center and UMC Student Center.
