Columbus (Ohio)

Columbus is the capital of the US state Ohio and its largest city. The city is located at the confluence of the Scioto and Olentangy Rivers and is home to Ohio State University, one of the largest connected university complexes in the USA, as well as numerous large sports teams. Columbus is currently the 15th largest city in the United States.

Districts [edit]

Columbus can be roughly divided into the districts Downtown, University Area, Northwest Columbus, Northeast Columbus and South Columbus, whereby the individual neighborhoods within the districts can still differ significantly.

Background [edit]

Columbus, built by a group of investors, was granted city rights in 1812. Many Germans settled in the city, so that the proportion of Germans in the population of Columbus temporarily made up a third. The influence of German culture in Columbus can still be seen today, especially in the German Village and the Brewery District south of the city center. In the past, the construction of carriages was one of the largest industries in the city, giving Columbus the nickname Buggy Capital of the World received.

Mobility [edit]

By bus

The Central Ohio Transit Authority bus routes cover most of the city and surrounding towns. Tickets cost $ 2.75 for an express bus and $ 2.00 for a Local / Crosstown bus. Switching (English: transfers) between Local / Crosstown buses is free, but switching between bus types, e.g. B. from a local to an express route are chargeable. You ask the bus driver for a change when you pay your fare and receive a transfer pass that you use when boarding the next bus. You cannot get on a bus going in the opposite direction with a transfer pass (i.e. you cannot get off a bus route and get on a bus going the other way with the transfer pass).

On foot

Most of High St. (US Route 23) from Clintonville in the north to Merion Village in the south is pedestrian friendly. The neighborhoods between campus and Short North used to be pretty bleak. But gentrification and the growing number of student apartments, boutiques and restaurants have resulted in a more pedestrian-friendly environment. Downtown Columbus is within a 20 minute walk of most attractions. The Columbus Landmarks Foundation also conducts hiking tours.

By car

Columbus is an auto-centric city. Cars are used a lot even in the city center. Parking is easy and inexpensive at almost all major destinations. There are plenty of parking lots and garages around the city. There are few areas of the city, like Short North, where it is harder to find parking; however, there is ample parking for $ 5 per vehicle. Changes of direction (English: u-turns) are prohibited in the entire city area.

It's a short drive ($ 20-50 taxi ride) to downtown from Port Columbus (airport) on I-670W. Uber and Lyft are also available. Travel expenses range on the lower end of the price range between $ 20-50.

Columbus is notorious for aggressive towing companies, especially downtown, on campus, and in Short North. Before parking anywhere, make sure there is no “Private Parking” or “Tow Away Zone” sign nearby.

By bike [edit]

CoGo Bike Share is a bike sharing sharing program with stations in the city center. You can pick up a bike at any station and return it at any station. A pass for $ 8 allows unlimited 30-minute rides within 24 hours. A pass for 3 × 24h costs $ 18.
