Transportation in Columbus, Ohio
If you’ve decided to move to Columbus, you should know that its public transport system known as COTA (Central Ohio Transit Authority) is said to be quite safe and convenient. So, if necessary, you can rely on public transport once you get there. However, no matter how safe it is, you will, without a doubt, find it much easier to get around a new city in the comfort of your own vehicle, right? In case you didn’t know, it’s worth mentioning that Columbus is located in the center of the state of Ohio. In addition to this, there are many outbound roadways there, too, so it’s safe to say that almost all of the state’s destinations are within a two or three hour drive from your future home. Thus, if you have a car in Columbus, you can get anywhere you want in a short time, so we’re sure you don’t want to miss such an opportunity just because you find car shipping too complicated. Of course, you can rent a car wherever you move, but before you go for this option, you should remember that car rentals are only a temporary solution and, in the long run, the more expensive one, too. If, for instance, you were to stay in Columbus for only a couple of days, renting a car would probably be the right way to go. But, when moving there, such a decision would prove to be a waste of time and money sooner that you can imagine. Finally, we should tell you that the street plan in Columbus is not that complicated, so you’ll be surprised how quickly you’ll learn the grid pattern, and you’ll be able to get around this fantastic city as if you had lived there for years.
