Transportation Services Prepare for Busy Season
COLUMBIA - Travelers are getting ready for the holiday season and transportation services like MoX and Megabus are seeing an increased volume, a MoX employee said Thursday.
This Thursday, Friday and Saturday is a time when business really starts to pick up, said MoX employee Andy Estabrooks. MoX has 12 routes to the St. Louis Airport and five to the Kansas City Airport. With a lot of travelers for the holidays, the office becomes a lot busier. At times the phones don't stop ringing, and even for long time employees like Extrabrooks, it can be a challenge he said.
MU student, Allyson Wilson, has used Megabus many times. She said this time of year the buses are usually full.
Megabus picks passengers up at Columbia Transit's Wabash Station but they have no affiliation. Megabus just uses the lot to pick up passengers twice a day all week.
