The public bus transportation service is provided by COTA (Central Ohio Transit Authority), which is a public sector transit agency serving Franklin County and the rest of the central Ohio area, also serving, besides Columbus, other communities such as Grove City, Upper Arlington or Grandview Heights. COTA’s headquarters in Columbus is at 1600 McKinley Avenue.




The city used to have a major train station downtown called Union Station, but today it is the largest metropolitan area in the U.S. without passenger rail service. However, it is planned to reintroduce passenger rail service to Columbus via the Ohio Hub project.
