During extreme weather conditions (heavy ice or snow), Columbia Transit buses will operate on the Emergency Weather Schedule. Departure times will be on the hour from the Wabash Station and on the half hour from scheduled time points (for example: on the 103 West- Columbia Mall).
Columbia Transit will notify all major TV and radio stations as early as possible when switching to the Emergency Weather Schedule. If you would like up-to-the-minute information, follow us on Twitter and Facebook. When possible, Columbia Transit will give at least one hour's notice before changing to or from the Emergency Weather Schedule; however, during rapid changes in road conditions, Columbia Transit reserves the right to change to the Emergency Weather Schedule at any time.
Plan on allowing more travel time for your trip to be completed. The buses will follow the regular routes unless a street becomes totally impassable. Columbia Transit WILL NOT cancel service unless major city streets are completely impassable due to very heavy snow or ice.

When a tornado warning has been issued for the City of Columbia the dispatcher will notify drivers to proceed to the nearest shelter area, such as the Mall or the Wabash Station. In some cases, the driver may pull over and evacuate the bus at a building along the route and direct passengers to a safe haven during the storm. It is important that all passengers remain calm and follow the driver's instructions to remain safe.
At the Wabash Station, the dispatcher will evacuate the waiting area. Again, passengers should remain calm and follow the lead of the dispatcher.
