COTA Announces Transit Reroutes this Saturday for Pelotonia

Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA) is announcing a major reroute of transit service Saturday, Aug. 6 for Pelotonia.

 This weekend, thousands of bicyclists will embark on rides up to 200 miles to raise money for research in the fight against cancer. As a result, several streets will be closed and that will impact some COTA transit lines.

These reroutes will begin at approximately 6:30 a.m. and will run through the early afternoon. This will also impact many transit stops in Downtown and East Columbus.

For additional information or to find out if your transit stop will be impacted, please contact COTA Customer Service at (614) 228-1776. Reroute information will be shared on the home page of and on social media throughout the weekend.
