Airport to downtown for just $2.75

March 19, 2020: COTA's AirConnect service has been discontinued. 

The Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA) provides direct bus service between the airport and downtown for only $2.75. It’s called AirConnect, an affordable and easy way to reach downtown hotels and the Greater Columbus Convention Center. Purchase your ride pass with a credit card at the bus stop, which is just to the right of the taxi station. COTA’s AirConnect service runs every 30 minutes, 7 days a week. Once downtown, COTA operates dozens of bus lines, including the free CBUS that connects our Brewery District, downtown and the Short North together. More details and a map of downtown Columbus AirConnect steps are available on COTA’s website.

COTA bus line 7 MT VERNON is also an option to reach John Glenn International’s terminal. COTA’s Trip Planner is a useful tool to help get you to and from the terminal. Or call their customer service hotline at 614-228-1776.
