You can find all types of transportation details below:
Bike Parking / Bike Share
The CoGo Bike Share service has a bike dock station available in a convenient location near the intersection of Gay Street and Third Street (across from Tip Top Kitchen & Cocktails). The station gets busy during the Sunlight Market, so take note of the three other CoGo bike docks located just two blocks away:
If you ride your own bike, you’ll find that Gay Street is home to ample bike parking accommodations. There are many dedicated U-shaped bike racks in front of Cafe Brioso in addition to a bike maintenance station. There are additional U-racks spread out throughout the district. Bike riders can also lock up using any public sign posts or parking meters. Please keep your bikes out of the public walk way as much as possible, for the safety of your bike as well as the safety of others.
COTA Bus Stops & CBUS Circulator
The Gay Street area is served by many major COTA bus routes at High Street stops including the #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, #7, #8, #9, #11, #15, #16, #21 and others. Additional popular routes such as the #10 stop just one block away at Broad and High. Please refer to COTA.com for the most updated maps and timetables.

Public Parking Meters
The City of Columbus has added many new public parking meters to streets and alleyways all around Gay Street in recent years. Public parking meters are not enforced on Sundays, which mean they are free to use. Please double check signage for the latest information on parking restrictions.
