The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium and the Central Transit Authority are offering COTA’s Zoo Bus again this year. Ride the COTA Zoo Bus and get $3 admission into the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, and/or $10 off admission to Zoombezi Bay. The ticket will only be valid for the day of the ride.
Riding the Zoo Bus to the Columbus Zoo throughout the summer season is not only a greener way to get there, it’s also less expensive, as you won’t have to pay the $10 parking fee AND you’ll get a BIG discount on admission to the Columbus Zoo and Zoombezi Bay.
Zoo Bus Riders will receive Columbus Zoo admission for $3 and Zoombezi Bay discount of $10 off admission per person each time they take the Zoo bus for the rest of the summer. There are 5 departure times to and from the Zoo, so you can spend as little or as much of your day at the Columbus Zoo and Zoombezi Bay.
Zoo Bus fares are $2 each way. Weekend and Holiday Zoo Bus service runs Saturday, May 11 – Monday, September 2, 2019, and weekday service runs Tuesday, May 28 – Friday, August 30. Zoo Bus riders can board at the Statehouse Downtown stop (located on High Street between State Street and Broad Street) or leave their cars at the Griggs Dam Park & Ride (located at Riverside Drive & Nottingham Road) or Dublin Park and Ride to avoid paying for parking Downtown, though meters are typically free on Sundays in downtown Columbus.
