GREAT Workforce Transportation

Groveport Rickenbacker Employee Access Transit workforce transportation program (GREAT) works to ease last mile service for COTA riders. Rickenbacker area businesses rely on a commuter workforce, so safe efficient, on-time and cost effective public transportation options are vital. The City of Groveport is pleased to provide this service in cooperation with Obetz and COTA.
