SmartRide New Albany
Getting New Albany to Work
COTA has partnered with the City of New Albany to create an innovative way of getting to work. COTA Line 45 provides a transit alternative designed to bring workers to and from the growing number of jobs in the New Albany International Business Park, along with routes that transports residents to and from Downtown Columbus and Easton Transit Center.
Since its launch, this program has quickly gained ridership among business park employees attracted to the less expensive, hassle-free commute. SmartRide New Albany runs between Columbus and New Albany weekday mornings and evenings with free shuttle service from the bus stop that takes riders to and from companies in the business park. The COTA Park & Ride is located at 5202 Forest Dr., across from the Courtyard by Marriott, offering visitors a convenient transportation option.
