Oberlin has arranged for private shuttle services for students to and from campus to the airport and to local venues. These services are offered throughout the academic year.
Airport Oberlin Shuttle (AOS)
Oberlin partners with Airport Oberlin Shuttle (AOS) to provide a variety of shuttle services to campus, including shuttle service between Oberlin and Cleveland Hopkins International Airport as well as a free local shopping shuttle every Saturday during the academic year.
Airport shuttles connect with the Cleveland RTA Rapid service at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport. This allows for further travel into downtown Cleveland, the West Side Market, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, and much more.
Regular Airport Shuttle
Due to low ridership, the airport shuttle that previously ran 4 days per week will be discontinued on 1/4/2023; however, riders can continue to use AOS’s on-demand private car service that is available 7 days per week. The college will continue to partner with AOS to offer airport shuttles before/after breaks and for special events such as Parent and Family Weekend.
Private Car Service
Private car, van or bus service between Oberlin and Cleveland Hopkins International Airport and beyond is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by reservation. The fare between Oberlin and the airport is a flat rate of $65 and gratuity for one passenger.
