COLUMBUS — City of Columbus officials want to talk with the owner of a Lawrence, Ind., bus company with the possibility of providing a local public transportation service.

The Commercial Dispatch 10 buses might be available for a Columbus-area transit system.

Travis Jones, the city’s director of federal programs, says Criss Reeding, owner of Lawrence Transit System, is eager to talk with the city.

Columbus does not have any public transportation.

Jones says the bus service could come at no cost to the city. Estimated fares for the service are $1.50 for students, $2 for adults and $5 a month for handicapped passengers.

Reeding says the proposed 10 buses would be a mixture of 32- and 18-passenger buses, all fully handicap-accessible.
