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, especially weekdays, select weekends, and during academic breaks.
Airport Oberlin Shuttle (AOS)
Airport Oberlin Shuttle (AOS) is the main private shuttle provider that offers shuttle service between Oberlin and Cleveland Hopkins International Airport for a nominal fee.
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.
$22 (online reservation required).
We will be following all CDC guidelines. Riders are required to wear face masks the entire duration of the shuttle ride.
If any of the shuttle times doesn’t work for you, we can provide a private shuttle service upon request. For any questions, please feel free to call the transportation coordinator Joseph Park, 216-322-4464.
