COTA Service Changes Effective Monday, January 5
The Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA) will implement its January 2009 Service Changes on Monday, January 5.
The service changes, which are part of COTA’s ongoing expansion program, feature expanded service on existing routes as well as new routes. In addition, a number of key routes have been modified to expand frequency of service, extend span of service and improve reliability and convenience.
Among the highlights are two (2) new Park and Rides (Hilliard Rome and Renner roads at the Meijer store, and the south side of Eastland Mall along Refugee Road); a new Express Route (#32 Crosswoods) with service between the Crosswoods Park and Ride and downtown Columbus, and extended service on Route #1 (Cleveland Avenue) to Polaris Parkway and Africa Road.
In addition, COTA is improving service frequencies on the #2 N. High Street and #2 E. Main Street to address overcrowding issues; realigning service on the #50 Rickenbacker Express to serve neighborhoods on the south side of Columbus; and adding a weekday morning southbound trip on Route #15 from Town and Central to the Grove City Park and Ride.
