The Central Ohio Transit Authority began implementing its NextGen plan in 2015, aiming to determine the needs of Columbus residents and identify opportunities for growth through 2050. Now, COTA is heading into the final phase of this project and will soon begin implementing plans for updates to the transit system.

Today we'll discuss what's in store for mass transit in Columbus with a panel of guests.

The COTA NextGen survey is available here through the end of the month.
