COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Columbus residents may not be aware of all of the changes from METRA. On Monday, some of those questions were answered. 

A representative from METRA was at the Goodwill Career Center to host a "good info" session. 

People were able to ask questions about METRA's recently-announced changes and improvements to the transit system. 

Jamie Austin with Goodwill says many people use public transportation and are learning about the changes will benefit them.

"There expanded services do offer more opportunities for people seeking employment because they have longer hours and expanded area," Austin said.

Those who missed the Q and A session can call Goodwill for further questions about METRA's changes.
