COTA Zoo Bus Weekday Service Starts May 30
COLUMBUS, OH—The Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA) Zoo Bus is an easy way to travel
between Downtown and the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium this summer! Weekday service starts
Tuesday, May 30 and runs through Friday, September 1. Weekend and Holiday Zoo Bus
service runs through Monday, September 4, 2017. The Zoo Bus operates Memorial Day,
Independence Day and Labor Day.
COTA and the Zoo are offering Zoo Bus riders special savings on Zoo admission this summer.
Riders will receive Columbus Zoo admission for $3 and Zoombezi Bay admission for $10 per
person. Zoo Bus fares are only $2 each way.
Zoo Bus riders should ask the bus operator for a transfer/coupon. Discounted admission will be
provided when Zoo Bus riders present the transfer/coupon at the Zoo’s admission windows.
(The discount is not valid with other offers.) Zoo Bus riders can board at the Statehouse
Downtown stop (located on High Street between State Street and Broad Street) or leave their
cars at the Griggs Dam Park & Ride (located at Riverside Drive & Nottingham Road) to avoid
paying for parking downtown.
