Columbus Travel Guide

John Glenn Columbus International Airport (CMH) is located 7.2 miles/20 minutes from the SpringHill Suites Columbus OSU where a room block for the conference has been reserved. We recommend taking a taxi or rideshare from the airport to the hotel.

All CMH taxis charge the same rate structure:

  • Initial charge (includes loading & first 1/9 mile) $3.00
  • Each 60 seconds of waiting time $0.45
  • Each additional 2/9 mile $0.45
  • Surcharge for each trip originating or terminating at airport $3.00
  • Sales Tax 7.5%

Thus, the typical cost of a taxi fare from the airport to the OSU campus area is $22-$28.

Rideshare is easily accessible at the airport, loading zones are located next to the taxicab zone. Rideshare prices typically range from $21-$24.

The reserved hotel, SpringHill Suites Columbus OSU, will be providing free shuttles from the hotel to the conference venue (2.0 miles).

Should you want to explore the city of Columbus beyond the conference, rideshares and electric scooters are popular ways to get around. Bus fare is $2 one-way or $4.50 for a one-day pass, available on board the vehicle or on the “Transit” app.
