The CMRTA bus routes cover the majority of the entire Midlands area within Richland and Lexington County which allows for excellent exposure to the Midlands area population of over 500,000 residents.

The metropolitan statistical area of Columbia has a population estimate of 767,598 according to the 2011 estimates performed by the U.S. Census Bureau with the city limit of Columbia itself estimated at 130,591.

Located just 13 miles northwest of South Carolina's geographic center, Columbia is the primary city of the Midlands region of South Carolina, which comprises several counties in the central portion of the state. As such it is centrally located to the rest of the state. Founded in 1786 as the site of South Carolina's new capital city, it was one of the first planned cities in the United States. The area is often cited for its high quality of life offerings, with its many cultural amenities, parks, and recreational features. At the confluence of two major rivers, Columbia is one of the best destinations in the country for kayak and canoe enthusiasts. It is also known for its large number of independent theater groups. Columbia was recently one of 30 communities named "America's Most Livable Communities."
