Lions and tigers and bears. And buses? Yes, COTA is now offering service between downtown and the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. You can take Line 98 to the Zoo on weekends and holidays through September 1 and on weekdays through August 29. Just board the bus at the Ohio Statehouse or leave your car at the Griggs Dam Park & Ride or Dublin Park & Ride.
The cost is just $2 each way. And when you ask your bus operator for a transfer/coupon, you will receive half-off regular Zoo admission or $4 off Zoombezi Bay admission for the day of your ride.
