Columbus is primarily a college town which means that the two best methods of getting around are walking or bicycling. Travelers will find that most hotels are located within walking distance of campus and all major attractions. Those attractions which are further away are easily accessibly by bicycle. One of the most popular ways of getting from one end of Columbus to the other is to walk along the River Walk which extends for fifteen miles and offers a nice respite from the more urban part of the city.
Travelers who wish to supplement their on-foot or on-bike transportation will find that the public transportation option in the area is good, at least for getting around during the day. The public transportation is a bus system which is operated by METRA (see http://www.columbusga.org/metra/ for complete details). It is an inexpensive travel option (costing only $1.25 for adults and $1 for children and seniors). Buses run from four thirty in the morning until eight thirty in the evening. It should be noted that buses do not run on Sundays.
Visitors can also call a taxi to get them to where they wish to go. There are many different cab companies in the area, including Airborne Taxi, Bi-City Taxi, City Cab, Radio Cab and Yellow Cab of Columbus.
