Metro transportation changes proposed

Jun 16, 2011 1:27:00 PM - thestate.com
The Columbia-area’s transit system would bring suburban commuters downtown, shuttle them around the city during the workday and would be overseen by a streamlined board with fewer politicians making transit decisions.

That’s the vision presented Thursday by a USC transportation official who spent three months evaluating the metropolitan area’s anemic bus system. Derrick Huggins laid out his plan this morning to a roomful of transit supporters in a downtown office building.

“Let’s start this transformation,” Huggins beseeched the group of about 200.

The upbeat presentation ended with a challenge from the Greater Columbia Chamber of Commerce. “If it doesn’t come from this room,” said chamber president Mike Brenan, “I don’t know where it’s going to come from.”
