Start time for the game is noon, and COTA service begins operation three hours before kickoff. Return service begins after the third quarter and operates for two hours after the game ends. Drop-off and pick-up are at the same location.

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 game is south of 17th Avenue and 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” ride free (limit three children per family).

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 also will 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.
