CABS routes (including paratransit and on-demand service) are suspended six hours before kickoff until two hours after the end of the game.

New Football Shuttle Route - Face Masks Remain Required On All Public Transit.

Due to heavy construction around the west campus Carmack Lots and near the School of Veterinary Medicine, the free football shuttle will be altering its pickup location, dropoff location and routing for the 2021 season!

FOOTBALL SHUTTLE: The free football shuttle will provide service between the Carmack 1 parking lot on west campus,  just west of Kenny Road, and the Herrick Drive Transit Hub, located off of John Herrick Drive, just west of the Neil Avenue Garage  View the parking and shuttle map.

ADA SHUTTLE: A handicap accessible shuttle service will pickup riders inside the North St. John Arena Disability parking lots near the ROTC building. Additional information is available online under "Shuttle Services."

Construction Projects Change How Fans Enter / Exit Campus on Game Days

  • John Herrick Drive, including the Herrick Bridge and Tharpe Street, will be closed to the public, limiting access to parking. Please seek alternative routes.
  • Woody Hayes Drive will be closed to the public between John Herrick Drive and Kenny Road. Fans trying to access west campus or the Ag Lot parking should seek alternative routes along Lane Avenue and Fyffe Road.

COTA Updates

  • COTA will not run transit service this season from the Fairgrounds or Crosswoods Park.
  • Fans will have access to COTA’s fixed-route bus service on game day. Lines 1, 2, 8, 22, 31 and 102 all serve the Ohio State campus area and most provide service every 15-to-30 minutes.
