Columbus is different for everyone, and Transit Columbus wants to know what yours is. A contest beginning Nov. 1 is calling for entries to create maps of the city with their alternative transportation. The competition is trying to create a map that will change how many people see the city both inside and out. Maps will be accepted up until Dec. 31, and in January the public will vote on which they think is best. COTA Bus Routes, CABS Bus Routes, CBUS, CoGo Stations, Car2Go Service Area, Bikeways/Trails, Intercity Buses and car services are all part of the grand scheme of the map, but what contestants include is up to them. The winning team will win $2,000.
