Columbus considers bus route changes

Changes could be coming to three bus routes starting in January that officials say will better serve the community’s needs.

ColumBUS Transit has proposed adjustments to Route 1, 2 and 3, the first changes in bus service since the city added the west-side route last year. No changes are being proposed on Routes 4 and 5.

Under the proposed changes, Route 1 would bring more frequent service to IUPUC, Ivy Tech Community College and the Bartholomew County Division of Family Resources, all located on the Columbus AirPark on the city’s north side.

Buses would be available two times an hour instead of one, said Cindy Setser, transit coordinator for the city.
