Starting on January 3rd, 2011, the Central Ohio Transit Authority will be expanding their #21 late-night weekend bus line southward through Downtown and into German Village.

“We are extending the Night Owl from simply running between Whetstone Park and the Arena District to include German Village and Brewery District,” said Beth Berkemer, Public and Media Relations Manager at COTA.

The Night Owl will run in 30 minute headways on Friday and Saturday evenings from 7pm through 3am. The expansion brings the bus southbound on High to Sycamore, where it will turn and head west to Front Street. The line will run northbound on Front through the Brewery District back up to Livingston where it will reconnect over to High Street.

“We are also going to start the new Night Owl hours for New Year’s Eve,” added Berkemer.

More information about all of the service changes taking place on January 3rd can be found in this Service Change Document (PDF). Information about the #21 can be found on Page 30 of the document.

    That is excellent!  Would be even more excellent if they came down to Whitter, then over to Front, but it’s a good start.

    That’s awesome.  Now if they could extend it to the North border of Beechwold so I could get to and from Bob’s Bar….

    Leave requests for the extensions you want!  They really do log them and send them to COTA’s Planning Department – I swear! It has worked for me!

    Whomever thought to photoshop a little hat and tuxedo on the owl for the New Year’s ad is brilliant. Certainly gave me a laugh this afternoon!
