CMAX’s Maiden Voyage

I was in downtown Columbus the other day, where COTA’s new bus rapid transit system – the C-MAX – is enjoying its maiden run. CMAX is free for the first week, which was a nice gesture for riders who had to wait in sub-zero temperatures during the first week of 2018.

My initial observation is that the bus was honestly hard to photograph due to traversing past High and Broad much faster than usual COTA buses that slowly mosey through downtown. The CMAX is projected to cut travel times by 20%, but my observation based on rider experience is that could be cut much further by reducing boarding and waiting times at transfer points.
