City budget proposal has funds for a west-side bus route

Follow The Republic:

Next year's proposed Columbus city budget would allow for a long-requested bus route to the city's west side.

The proposal calls for about $140,000 in the city's transit budget to cover costs for new personnel, fuel, oil and maintenance needed to operate a fifth bus line.

Cindy Setser, the city's transit coordinator, said a west-side route would fulfill a great need for those who live west of the Flatrock River, where the ColumBUS lines currently cut off.

That need was identified by a study last year, when more than half of ColumBUS riders said they would want a new route along State Road 46 West.
