The City of Columbia is applying for the 2013 Department of Transportation's TIGER grant. We are proposing upgrades to our mass transportation system by changing the routes to better serve the citizens of Boone County and need assistance finishing the project. A project that networks together multiple modes of transportation, fuel, and citizens across a community is how transportation will be successful in the future. The City of Columbia’s proposed CoMo Connect project is the future of transportation that the United States should be funding.
- Activity 1 - Adding bus shelters with benches, security lighting, and intelligent signage to provide excellent customer service. We will also be adding commuter bus shelters where cyclists have a safe spot to park their bike and ride the bus to work, school, play, etc.
- Activity 2 - Purchasing Compressed Natural Gas-powered buses for some of our Transit fleet.
- Activity 3 - Building a Compressed Natural Gas fueling station.
- Activity 4 - Installing four (4) electric vehicle charging stations at downtown parking garages.
