    These posters are correct: downtown hotels (and many non-downtown hotels) run airport shuttles, travelers expect them, it’s built into room cost and no doubt has meaningful impact on COTAs CMH service.

    Parks too. We’re not getting enough revenue from our highly subsidized parks. ;)

    Because it is a pain in the ass to use…

    It definitely is, but it’s a big cost-saver over a taxi. A taxi from NW Columbus to the airport costs me about $40

    Last weekend, a 2 mile walk with luggage, 1 transfer and 2.5 hours later, I got to the airport by bus. It sucked, but it only cost $2. Saving $38 over 2.5h = $15.20 savings/hour.

    Like any transit experience, you’re best to plan ahead and bring something to read/do while you wait.

    I suppose you if decide that your time is worth that, then good job!
