Some casinos invoke descriptions of Armani-dressed men and Chanel-decorated women moving up to red carpets in limos and Mercedes Benz to attract more customers. However, a more useful and practical means of transportation i.e. city bus is being offered by COTA (Central Ohio Transit Authority) to the Hollywood Casino Columbus that is going to open shortly. The working of this new service will incur expenditure worth $161,000 per annum. The casino will open on 8th of Oct and the bus service will be started on 12th of Oct. The buses will run from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays on the passage that passes through the Arena District and by the side of W. Broad Street to the casino. A name or number will be allotted to the line shortly.
As per statement given by the director of capital projects and development for COTA, keeping in view the success of late-night service, they are on the outlook for development of other types of service in order to check its viability. Since the casino area has progressed, therefore people will come to visit it. Also the people on the passageway will be lured by the new bus service to visit Downtown. The No.6 and No.10 bus lines are also being considered to start their services to the casino during day time. The company under which the casino is being operated never came up to COTA for building up of a new passage; however it praises the new service. A representative for Penn National Gaming, Bob Tenenbaum expressed his delight over the bus service and stated that such a service that aids in getting people to the casino is going to help customers as well as employees of the casino.
The chairman of the Franklinton Area Commission, Matt Egner expressed his concern over the disturbance caused to the West Side neighborhood by the new service. He added that people with low level income are at risk to lose their hard earned money in gambling as they can easily reach the casino with the help of this new bus service.
