Getting Around Columbus

If that doesn't suit your budget, you can arrange flights in and out of Marion, OH (MNN-Marion Municipal), which is 45.4 mi (73.1 km) away. Columbus may not have many public transit options to choose from so a rental car could be an economical alternative to see more of the area.
