It’s the last and biggest game of the season!

The Central Ohio Transit Authority is offering its popular express bus service to the Ohio State University home football game Sat., Nov. 24, when the Buckeyes host the Michigan Wolverines. Start time for the game is noon.

Details of COTA’s service can be found here.

COTA has once again partnered with the Ohio Expo Center to provide convenient, low-cost Park & Ride service between the Expo Center at 17th Avenue and I-71, and 17th Avenue and Neil Avenue – approximately one block from Ohio Stadium. Parking for the Michigan game is north of 17thAvenue. Buses will arrive approximately every 5-10 minutes.

The cost to park at the Expo Center is $5. Roundtrip express fare to Ohio Stadium is $5.50 for adults and $2 for children. Children up to 12 years of age and under 48” tall ride free (limit three children per family).

COTA’s Expo Center football service begins operation three hours before kick-off. Return service begins after the third quarter, and operates for two hours after the game ends. Drop-off location will be the same as the pick-up location.

Fans may take the football service bus without parking at the Expo Center for the same roundtrip fee of $5.50 per adult. Fans parking RV’s at the Expo Center are also invited to take the express bus.

Fans can park for free and board express football service at COTA’s Crosswoods Park & Ride, 7460 Huntington Park Dr., which will also operate three hours before and two hours after each home football game. Roundtrip express fare to Ohio Stadium is $5.50 per adult, and $2 per child.
