GREAT Workforce Transportation

Groveport Rickenbacker Employee Access Transit (GREAT) is the last mile commute for riders using COTA to the Rickenbacker area. Rickenbacker businesses rely on a commuter workforce where safe, efficient, on-time and cost effective transit options are vital. The City of Groveport is pleased to provide this service in cooperation with the Village of Obetz and COTA. 


GREAT shuttles coordinate with COTA Line #81 at the intervals and locations found in our GREAT Brochure (PDF). Brochures are also available on buses and at your workplace. View the Route Map (PDF) for more information.
