Columbus has one main transit, COTA (Central Ohio Transit Authority). Bus fare is $1.50 for one ride and $3.50 for a Day Pass, although there are ways to get around that. Many high schools give out student ID's with a free COTA pass on them. These are very easy to scan and change the picture and name. Also, students attending OSU receive "Buck ID's" which are basically the same thing as a high school ID. Basically if you can scan, print and laminate a copy of one of these passes with your picture on it, you have free transportation wherever and whenever.
