Campus Area Bus Service (CABS) is a free transit service provided by Ohio State. Routes and schedules can be viewed on their website or via the Ohio State mobile app, which you can download at go.osu.edu/osuapps. A printed bus service map may be picked up at CampusParc. Contact 614-292-RIDE (7433) for additional information.
Vehicles parked on campus at any time are required to display a permit, purchase Pay-by-Plate surface lot parking or pay hourly fees posted at meters and in parking garages. Program 60 participants may purchase a regular "C", Buckeye Lot ("CX") or West Campus ("WC") permit for the semester or year:
- Online purchase is available only for those who are enrolled in courses during the semester or term by logging in with your Ohio State lastname.# and password on the CampusParc website.
- Holders of a State of Ohio Disability Placard are required to submit the BMV Certificate of Registration to CampusParc to obtain a university permit.
- Ohio State retirees are eligible to purchase an A permit at a discounted rate. Contact CampusParc for more information.
The paratransit service provides door-to-door transportation, both on and off campus. While the majority of rides are scheduled in advance, paratransit accepts on-demand rides as the schedule permits.
Program 60 participants can request to be added to the eligibility list by calling the department at 614-292-6202 and submitting a Paratransit Services Request Form that has been signed by a health-care provider.
