Visit Our Neighbors
There are numerous resources within walking distance of campus. In addition, the college has partnered with area businesses and nonprofit organizations to provide students (with a valid CCAD ID) access to free or reduced-rate services.
Cycling in Columbus
The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission has developed several maps to help cyclists get around in Columbus and access recreational paths.
Check out MORPC's website or download the Columbus Metro Bike Users Map (it's in two parts and rather large, so be patient):
|Metro Bike Users Map side one (4MB pdf)|
|Metro Bike Users Map side two (3MB pdf)|
Ride the COTA Bus for Free
CCAD students may ride any COTA bus free with a current CCAD student ID. There are bus schedules and pamphlets with a map and user information available on the first floor of the Loann Crane Center for Design near the main stairwell.
There is a bus stop for the westbound Route 10 bus in front of the Columbus Museum of Art (East Broad Street). This bus goes to the intersection of Broad and High streets and connects with numerous other lines.
If you are planning an evening trip be sure to check the schedule so you know when the last bus leaves!
Use the schedules located in the Crane Center lobby to check bus routes and times. Use www.cota.com to confirm that printed schedules are up-to-date.
