Before streetcars, trolleys or trains, central Ohioans might see those funky two-part buses on our streets. Articulated buses, which have two cabins connected by a flexible, accordionlike hinge, are on COTA’s list for the future. The Central Ohio Transit Authority asked the Columbus and Upper Arlington city councils to allow the buses on their streets. The Columbus council voted last night to allow the longer buses: 66 feet, compared with the former limit of 48 feet.
