Enjoy Unlimited Access to COTA

The APTA Mobility Conference is just around the corner and COTA is excited to welcome you with open arms! Thanks to a generous sponsorship from Masabi, all APTA attendees are invited to ride COTA's fixed-route services at no cost.

Take COTA from the airport to downtown, to the conference, to dinner and everywhere in between for no fare! Here's how to get moving with COTA.
  • Download the Transit app
  • Once you're in Central Ohio, click "Buy" to set up your COTA account*
  • When you reach "Fare Type," select "APTA Attendee"
  • You do not need to add a payment method

*The transit app is trusted by more than 200 cities around the globe. The option to choose "COTA" will only appear in the app when you reach Columbus.

From the Transit app, you can plan, track and pay for COTA rides. Just press the COTA-branded button on the home screen and scan your QR code on the onboard validator to ride. Transit app validators will be on your right hand side when you board any COTA transit vehicle.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact COTA Customer Care.

See you soon!
