About CMAX
The 15.6-mile CMAX Bus Rapid Transit (BRT)/Enhanced Bus Corridor route will serve
customers every 10 minutes between Downtown Columbus and SR-161 during rush hours,
with enhanced service to Polaris Parkway/Africa Road every 30 minutes. Traffic signal priority
and limited stops will allow customers to reach their destinations up to 15 minutes faster.
CMAX buses and stops will be uniquely branded to attract new riders and develop community
infrastructure along the corridor. Enhanced shelters and stations, including a new Northland
transit center and upgraded Northern Lights Park & Ride, will display real time information and
feature community art. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2016, with service launching in
September 2017.
