Traveling from Columbus Airport

By bus

If you do not wish to rent a car, there is bus service between Port Columbus Airport and Athens, Ohio. To learn more click here for their website gobus. The fare is $10 per person from the airport to Athens and similarly so from Athens to the airport.

By rental car

As you leave the airport, get onto I-270 South (it may be marked "Wheeling," because that direction takes you toward the I-70 interchange). You will travel approximately 10 miles on I-270. As you approach the I-70 interchange, I-270 splits into two sets of lanes. It does not matter which set you take, but the left set has less merging traffic, so is usually a bit faster. If you take the right set, stay to the left, so that you don't get forced onto I-70.

Immediately after the I-70 interchange, the two sets of lanes re-merge. Once that has settled out, change lanes toward the right, so that you will be positioned to take US-33 East, Exit 46 B (the second off-ramp at the I-270/US-33 interchange). You will travel on US-33E for approximately 67 miles from I-270 to get to Athens.

Fourteen miles from I-270 you will reach the exit for Business US-33 through the city of Lancaster. Business US-33 encounters numerous traffic lights, but provides access to motels, gasoline filling stations, and restaurants. The Lancaster bypass is now open, and unless you need those services, we do advise that you use the bypass, staying on US-33 instead of taking the Business Route exit as you approach Lancaster. (If you take the Lancaster bypass, it will likely take about one hour to get to Athens from just North of Lancaster.) Continue on US-33 East past Logan and Nelsonville (the Nelsonville bypass is now also open).

After Nelsonville, as you approach Athens, pass the first OH-682 exit (for "The Plains"). If there is a stop sign at the end of the OH-682 off-ramp, you have taken the exit for The Plains; get back on the highway and follow the directions in the next paragraph.

If you are going to Holiday Inn Express, take exit 15 from US-33 E. Turn left onto East State St for 0.2 miles and it will be on your right.

If you are going to Ohio University Inn or Margaret M. Walter Hall contiune on US-33 E. After US-33 E joins US-50 W and OH-32 W in Athens, take Exit 17, for OH-682 N. There is a traffic circle ("roundabout") at the end of the off-ramp. Traffic entering the circle must yield to traffic already in the circle.


For Margaret M. Walter Hall, keep to the right as you approach the traffic circle, go one-quarter of the way around, and take the first exit, onto Richland Avenue; cross the Hocking River and enter the Ohio University campus. At the first intersection Peden Stadium will be on your right. Take a right at the intersection and you will see Margaret M. Walter Hall on your left.
