Shuttle Service

IMR has discontinued its shuttle service, with Campus Area Bus Service (CABS) now providing service to West Campus.


The IMR Shuttle retired Friday, Sept. 27, 2019, after years of improving connectivity to the many state-of-the-art research facilities on West Campus. The shuttle was used by those conducting research at the Center for Electron Microscopy and Analysis (CEMAS), Nanotech West Laboratory, the Center for Automotive Research, or other West Campus facilities on Kinnear Road, such as the ElectroScience Laboratory.


CABS is a free transit service provided by Ohio State’s Transportation and Traffic Management that offers clean and reliable transportation on and around Ohio State’s Columbus Campus.


The West Campus CABS route is scheduled to make frequent loops throughout regular weekdays, making its first stop earlier and last stop later than IMR’s shuttle service. CABS will also offer limited summer and break service to West Campus.


Transportation and Traffic Management offers bus schedules, routes and stops, maps, guidelines for riders, and a link to download the Ohio State App for real-time CABS bus tracking.
