COLUMBIA - Community members came out Wednesday night to give their opinion on the new bus system change the Columbia Public School District.
More than 250 people came out to write down what they thought were the pros and cons of the new system, as well as issues that need to be addressed. With the new system, schools starting time will be changed depending on the route. An issue leading most of the conversations what students will do after school if they have an extra hour and how parents are supposed to plan around that.
This meeting was is the first of its kind. Organizers favored the big-group format over a number of small meetings with fewer people. The new bus system will use this meeting's feedback to modify the new system.
