Getting Around

The primary way to get around the area is with a private vehicle. Traffic in the area is reasonable, with rush hours delays that fall well below those found in many other urban/surburban areas of the state and country.

Public Transit

Althrough there is no formal public transit, there are several Ride Share/Solution programs, and you can always take advantage of Park and Ride lots in the Columbus/Franklin County area. Additionally, Violet Township participates in a Public Transit Program called Lancaster Public Transit.You can click on  the images for more information

Public Transit offering more service through their Flex Routes!

Lancaster-Fairfield Public Transit (LFPT) is excited to announce they will be offering additional service for the Pickerington flex route beginning Monday, September 30, 2019.

As “one of the fastest growing communities in both the state and central Ohio (Planning and Zoning Department of Pickerington), the need for affordable public transit has continued to grow with a significant increase in ridership of the Pickerington route.  Due to this increase, LFPT will be piloting additional stops to the current route as well as one additional day of service.  This pilot will operate for a period of six months to monitor the effectiveness and use of the additional service.

To utilize the route, just be at the posted bus-stop (signs at most locations) at least 5 minutes prior to the scheduled stop time with your cash fare of $0.50.  Once you board the vehicle, let your driver know at which stop you will de-boarding the vehicle.  Deviated pick-ups are available within a 3/4-mile radius of the listed stops by calling at least 24 hours in advance to request (limit one deviation per hour).
