Where to catch your bus during Oktoberfest

Posted at 1:55 PM, Sep 17, 2015

CINCINNATI — The numerous road closings Downtown for this weekend’s Oktoberfest Zinzinnati celebration won’t just mean changes for drivers. Bus riders will need to be ready for adjustments, as well.

With Government Square closing, along with portions of Fifth, Sixth, Main, Walnut and Vine streets, a number of Cincinnati Metro and Transit Authority of Northern Kentucky buses will be re-routed and require riders to catch their buses at different stops.

Don’t worry! There’s a consolation for any commute inconveniences: Metro has partnered with Miller Lite to offer free rides along all Metro routes, all day long on Sunday, in celebration of the Bengals’ home opener.

With the closings beginning at 9 a.m. Friday morning, here's a rundown of the bus that will be affected:
