With Ohio's stay-at-home order in effect, COTA is continuing to make changes to its services.

On Tuesday, COTA announced that all rush-hour commuter lines have been temporarily suspended.

Additionally, COTA will begin its dynamic service on Wednesday. COTA's current emergency policy permits a maximum of 20 passengers per bus. If a bus reaches that number, the driver will pass customers who are waiting at bus stops.

When the dynamic service begins, COTA-branded vehicles will be deployed in areas of higher ridership If a bus driver has to pass up a waiting customer due to a bus being full, a back-up vehicle will be immediately dispatched to pick up the customer.

Other schedule updates will remain in place.

The following crosstown lines will run at a reduced frequency:

  • 21- Hilliard/Rome
  • 22- OSU/Rickenbacker
  • 23- James/Stelzer
  • 24- Hamilton Road
  • 25- Brice
  • 31- Hudson
  • 32- North Broadway
  • 33- Henderson
  • 34- Morse/Henderson
  • 35-Dublin-Granville

The following rush-hour lines are temporarily suspended:

  • 43- Westerville
  • 46- Gahanna
  • 61- Grove City
  • 71- Hilliard
  • 73- Dublin
  • 74- Smoky Row
  • 41- Crosswoods/Polaris
  • 42- Sharon Woods

COTA said it will not be cutting lines for students using the transit authority to get free meals.
