About BuckID : COTA Bus Service
The long-standing partnership between OSU and COTA allows all OSU students unlimited access to any and all COTA lines using their valid BuckID (as long as they are enrolled in courses). This allows students immediate and convenient access to shopping, employment and entertainment destinations in Columbus and throughout Franklin County.
Any semester, OSU students who stay in Columbus but are not enrolled in classes can purchase a COTA opt-in pass. This pass is active for the duration of the term. Students can qualify for this pass once per calendar year as long as they were enrolled in the previous academic term. These opt-in passes must be purchased at Pass Sales at 33 N. High St, Columbus, OH 43215 for $62 per pass. Students must bring their BuckID.
