Despite impassioned testimony from residents, the Columbia City Council shut down a budget amendment last night that could’ve added about $260,000 per year to the GoCOMO public transit system.
KJ Thunder is a Columbia resident who frequents the buses, and says that something needs to change.
“Anybody who has another option, they're doing that other option,” Thunder said. “Nobody takes the bus anymore. If they have any other options, because the bus doesn't go anywhere and it doesn’t go very often.”
