UPDATE

COTA says it has resumed all normal routes following the Saturday protests

Original story:

The Central Ohio Transportation Authority said Saturday it is rerouting several bus lines around downtown Columbus because of demonstrations in the area.

COTA has rerouted 14 bus lines including 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 102 and CMAX.

Areas of transfer will be at East Broad Street and Grant Avenue.
