Using Uber at John Glenn Columbus International Airport

Flying into the John Glenn Columbus International Airport (CMH), you can’t help but feel that this is a city that is constantly on the move. Perhaps it’s because it’s the meeting place of both the Scioto River and Olentangy River, or maybe that it’s the headquarters to several national companies, but you get the feeling that big things are happening in Columbus, Ohio. With Uber available throughout Columbus, there’s no better way to get to the airport or to see the city in style. In fact, if you’re in need of extra space, you can request an UberSUV.

Here are a few other helpful tricks to keep up your sleeve for your upcoming trip out of CMH:

Columbus International Airport: tips and resources

  • Uber Airport Page: For all of the information you’ll need on requesting a ride, check out Uber’s airport page for CMH. Once you have requested your ride, confirm which of the three CMH terminals you are currently located at. The Uber driver-partner will meet you at the passenger pickup section outside of the baggage claim.
  • Terminal Map: Get to where you need to go by consulting a map of the terminals.
  • Weather: Temperatures are generally mild throughout the spring and fall, but summers can be quite hot and the winters can be frigid.
  • Traffic Report: 610 WTVN AM has got you covered on local traffic, but if you’re in need of an alternate route to the airport, head over to Google Maps.
  • Flight Status: Save precious time by checking the status of your flight before leaving the house.
  • TSA Guidelines: Don’t pack your bags without first going over the most recent TSA Guidelines.
  • Security Wait Times: With three bustling concourses at CMH, you’ll definitely want to see if there are security wait times.
  • Airport News: For all of the latest news out of the airport, you can follow them on Twitter or like them on Facebook.
  • While You Wait: If you’re in need of a pre-flight snack, you simply must grab a slice from Donato’s.

Where to go in Columbus

There’s more to Columbus than just Ohio State Football with its emerging arts scene and culinary delights. In fact, Columbus is even getting attention as a foodie scene, proving once and for all that there’s more to the city than having been the home of the very first Wendy’s. Here are just a few of the places in Columbus that will ensure you have a real Buckeye experience:

  • German Village: If you’re looking for the best shopping and dining in town, look no further than the German Village. Settled by German immigrants in the 19th century, this neighborhood features over 1,600 historic buildings that have been preserved, and today it’s the perfect spot for a leisurely stroll or a fantastic meal. If you’re craving an epic 1.5-pound burger (and who amongst us wouldn’t) be sure to have the Thurmanator at the Thurman Cafe.
  • Basi: Head to the Victorian Village for some of the best Italian food you’ll ever eat this side of Naples over at Basi. Run by a husband and wife team committed to using only locally sourced ingredients, you’ll definitely want to gorge yourself on the pan-roasted Ohio chicken or the lobster risotto. They’ve even got gluten-free pasta options, a true rarity at any Italian eatery.
  • Wexner Center for the Arts: Located on the Ohio State campus, The Wexner is a multidisciplinary center for the arts where you can take in a modern dance performance, a concert, or an exhibition of contemporary paintings. Of course, the real reason for going is their enviable film calendar which screens hard-to-find cult films in addition to their numerous film fests like the Zoom: Family Film Festival.
