A slight oversight?

I’ll be attending the Columbus Re-Wired event this coming Thursday. The “international ideas competition that imagines how an integrated transit network would transform the livability and sustainability of our region”.

Interestingly enough, the poster for this event makes no mention of how to get to Smith Brothers Hardware (850 North Fourth Street) other than to state that there is “Free Parking on site”.

Smith Brothers Hardware is accessible on foot, by bicycle and within a few block walk of most all High Street busses and directly with COTA route 4.
