Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Columbia's buses are getting a new name.
Wednesday, the Central Midlands Regional Transit Authority Board of Directors approved a new brand for the bus system. Beginning this fall, the bus system will be called "The Comet."
The idea for the new name actually came from a middle school student who attended a public forum regarding the bus system. CMRTA Executive Director Bob Schneider says they chose Comet because the name carries speed, reliability, and a limitless future with it.
