The Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA) and the City of Westerville are introducing COTA//Plus to the Westerville community on Monday, Aug. 24.

First piloted in Grove City, the program operates similarly to ride-share programs like Uber and Lyft with trips  scheduled 15 minutes ahead of time via the COTA Plus mobile application or phone call to (614) 308-4400. Uniformed COTA drivers will pick up customers in a branded, six-passenger COTA Plus vehicle at designated neighborhood pick-up spots. Users should expect to share a ride with their neighbors heading in similar directions. Individuals with mobility restrictions may register to receive door-to-door service.
