Ohio's COTA breaks ground on CMAX BRT line

Posted on August 8, 2016

Columbus’ Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA) hosted a groundbreaking celebration for their CMAX Cleveland Avenue bus rapid transit (BRT) line.

The celebration, held at Fort Hayes Metropolitan Education Center, included remarks from community leaders, and a ceremonial groundbreaking at the future location of a CMAX BRT station.

“We’re pleased to celebrate construction of CMAX, central Ohio’s first bus rapid transit line,” said COTA President/CEO W. Curtis Stitt. “The high-frequency service with improved travel times and upgraded customer amenities will enhance access to jobs, education and training opportunities, healthcare and other services in our community. CMAX will not only improve transportation in central Ohio, it has the potential to change lives.”

Launching in 2018, COTA’s first BRT line, CMAX, will connect more than 211,000 residents and 170,000 workers along Cleveland Avenue to jobs, healthcare and educational resources and encourage economic development in the corridor. The 15.6-mile route will serve customers every 10 minutes between Downtown Columbus and SR-161 during rush hours, with service to Polaris Parkway/Africa Road every 30 minutes.
