GoBus — Rural Inter-City Bus Service
Serving: Athens, Columbus, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Marietta, Parkersburg, Van Wert, Wooster and communities in between.
All of our buses are wheelchair accessible. Buses also lower or “kneel” at stops making boarding and de-boarding easier.
For passengers traveling to Parma, Cleveland, Broadview Heights, Akron, Canton, or Cambridge for Thanksgiving, we are adding an additional schedule to route C on Monday, November 30th to get passengers back to Athens, and other points in-between Cleveland and Athens. This will be a one-way schedule, and it will only operate on November 30th. Our services for November 29th are nearly sold out, so we are encouraging passengers to use this newly added schedule if it fits their Thanksgiving travel needs. This schedule will arrive at Ohio University at 9:45 AM, just in time for passengers to get to 10 AM classes.
Starting October 27, the Athens Community Center stop will be under construction. The stop will remain at the Athens Community Center but will pull straight in to the parking lot instead of in front of the parking lot. E-mail email@example.com if you have any questions.
