COTA to Resume All Transit Service Tuesday in Downtown Columbus

Starting Tuesday, COTA will resume its regular fixed-route service in the downtown Columbus area. Columbus Division of Police had declared an emergency due to recent demonstrations, requiring COTA to reroute 14 transit lines since May 30. This impacted Lines 1-12, 102 and CMAX.

In addition to resuming transit service in the area, transfer points will also be held at their regular locations downtown, as well as the 8 p.m. Nightly Line-up.

COTA Mainstream will also resume service in downtown Columbus starting tomorrow morning.

COTA has also added early morning service to six more frequent and crosstown transit lines, to meet growing workforce needs in the region. Lines 3, 5, 7, 31 and 32 now run from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Friday, which is two hours earlier than they have been operating. Line 12 will begin service at 7 a.m., which is one hour earlier.
