CoMET Campaign

PedNet Coalition launched the CoMET (Columbians for Modern, Efficient Transit) Campaign in March 2011 with the goal of tripling transit services in Columbia, MO.

The CoMET Campaign vision is:

“A modern, efficient transit system will enrich the lives and support the successes of all individuals, organizations, and businesses in Columbia, by providing a reliable, convenient transportation service that promotes health, opportunity, and sustainability.”

We partnered with the Columbia/Boone County Health Department to perform two transit Health Impact Assessments to inform decision makers about the potential health impact of improving and expanding transit services, as well as a funding mechanism considered to increase the transit budget. We also advocated in support of COMO Connect.

This campaign was funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
