Directions for your Columbus Airport Taxi to downtown

John Glenn Columbus International Airport is an airport located 9.7 km east of downtown Columbus, Ohio. Formerly known as Port Columbus International Airport, it is currently managed by the Columbus Regional Airport Authority. The airport code “CMH” stands for “Columbus Municipal Hangar,” which is its original name. It provides 148 non-stop flights to 31 airports via nine airlines every day.

Since the airport is merely 9.7 km away from the downtown area, your Welcome driver will only need 10 minutes to take you from John Glenn Columbus International Airport to your accommodation in the city. After exiting the airport gates and getting into the vehicle, they will first head south to Stelzer Road and make a right turn onto International Gateway. After following the International Gateway, your Columbus airport taxi will keep left at the fork and follow signs for I-670 W, before merging onto I-670 W/US-62 W.  After 7.5 kilometres, the driver will exit 4B for Third Street, therefore completing your CMH airport shuttle trip.

Columbus Airport Taxi Prices

Expect to be charged a minimum of $26 (€26) for a lift downtown in a classic taxi from Columbus airport’s taxi rank. Bear in mind, however, that standard cabs do not offer pre-set fares, instead, the final price of your ride is calculated by a taximeter. That means that what you pay eventually may vary depending on the time of day, traffic conditions, the total distance to your exact destination and any applicable surcharges. Therefore, pre-booking your Columbus airport taxi to your location downtown is the best value-for-money choice if you wish to avoid hidden fees and secure a fixed rate for your shuttle.

Frequently asked questions

Are there set Columbus, Ohio airport taxi rates?

Unfortunately, there are no set rates for a taxi from Columbus airport to the downtown zone. Columbus airport taxi drivers use a taximeter to calculate the final tariff, which depends on several factors, such as the distance, time of day and traffic conditions. Always ensure you have entered a licensed Columbus airport taxi by checking to see if there is a taximeter in the vehicle, or if the company name is written on the front or the side of the car. Alternatively, for set rates and extra peace of mind, you can reserve your ride with Welcome Pickups.

Where will I meet my Welcome driver?

As soon as you complete your Columbus airport shuttle reservation we will send you a confirmation email with all the details of your ride, including your meet and greet point. Following this, you will also receive a second email a day before your trip, containing your driver’s personal information, such as their full name, phone number and a recent photo, so that you can identify them easily when you see them at the airport.

What should I do if my flight is delayed?

There is no need to worry if your arrival time changes unexpectedly. Our drivers have got it all covered thanks to our latest technology; we are equipped with a live-update system that notifies us of any flight changes. Your assigned driver will monitor your flight and make sure we are there, no matter if you land on time, later or earlier than expected.
