The city of Dublin has traditionally been a place where central Ohio area employees needed a car to get to and from work. There is only limited access to COTA bus lines, and those that do ride have to change buses multiple times, walk, and/or take a Lyft or Uber from their bus stop to their place of work.
In comes the Dublin Circulator, provided by transportation startup SHARE. The Columbus-based microtransit service launched Dublin’s workforce shuttle in early 2019, with additional services for senior citizens, people with disabilities, and most recently a lunch circulator that takes employees to a number of Dublin shopping centers and plazas, including Bridge Park, Avery Square and Historic Dublin.
By scheduling rides 24 hours in advance on the SHARE app, Dublin employees can catch a ride from bus stops in Dublin — including on no. 1, 22 and 33 bus lines — to nearly two dozen employers, with more expected to be added.
