Biking for Transportation

Getting around town by bike is easy with these resources:

  • COGO
    Bike Share offers a whole new perspective to seeing our wonderful city that even Columbus natives may have never experienced and tourists will definitely enjoy. 
    • COTA Bike & Bus
      Every COTA bus has two bike racks located at the front of the bus which are free and easy to use. Just load your bike on the bike rack and jump on board.
    • Bike Parking  
      Accessible and secure bicycle parking encourages people to get where they need to go on their bicycle with a variety of parking options. 
    • Pedal Instead
      Free, secure bicycle parking stations at festivals and other events, helping reduce event traffic congestion and promote bicycling for transportation.

    Be sure to stay in the know and plan your route around potential hazards or closures.

    • Go to Paving The Way for roadway construction and safety information. You can also sign up for construction alerts via email or text message here. 
    • Sign up for Metro Parks Text Alerts for greenway trail closings and hazards, or text "Greenways" to 1-781-728-9542.
