Cheapest way to reach Troy from Colombus


I will be going to Troy mid-september and will land at Columbus Airport. I plan to spend a night near the airport and go to Troy next morning. What is the cheapest option available to go to Troy from Columbus.

Rental car. You could always look into a Grayhound bus though.

I wouldn't advise the Greyhound. Once upon a time I had to take a Greyhound to Troy, Ohio, and the closet stop was 35 minutes away in Dayton (and I was dropped off at 5 a.m.). Save yourself the trouble and rent a car. Troy is nearly a straight shot from Columbus, and you might need a car to get around Troy.

I would also not recommend a Greyhound, but for a different bad experience than previously mentioned. I've taken it once and not again. I haven't been to the Troy station, but sometimes the stations are not in the best locations/upkept very well. The bus will also take longer, not only because it is a bus, but because it may make other stops along the way to pick-up/drop-off and because the driver can only drive so long without stoping - that might not be an issue going from Columbus to Troy but i'm not sure what the rule is on how often they must stop.
