Columbia city bus riders wait for buses to arrive at the Wabash Bus Station at 126 N. Tenth St.

Riders with Android-based phones on Columbia buses now have to use a different way to access route updates and announcements.

The GoCoMo application programming interface is no longer compatible with Android phones after a recent base Android system update. The app remains functional on Apple-based phones.

The more than 1,000 active app users will have to rely on accessing the GoCoMoTransit website through a web browser on their phones instead of the app. The city is working to explore a replacement application, wrote John Ogan, Columbia Public Works spokesperson in an email to the Tribune.

Nearly 2,000 people have downloaded the Android GoCoMo App, where 1,050 are average daily active users in the past month.
