The Central Ohio Transit Authority’s new Downtown circulator, dubbed Cbus, is to carry its first passengers today.
There is no fee to ride the bus, which runs along High and Front streets between the Short North and the Brewery District.
The bus runs faster than most COTA lines, with 10-minute frequencies at each stop during the day and 15-minute frequencies at night. If passengers time it right, they shouldn’t have to wait more than five minutes for a circulator bus, said CEO Curtis Stitt.
There will be no charge through December, and COTA then will re-evaluate whether it will charge for rides, he said.
The 5.4-mile route has 29 stops. Click here to read the full article.
