CVG adds area for rental car buses

(HEBRON, KY) -- A new transportation center at the Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky International Airport will hope to ease congestion in front of Terminal 3 and offer environmental benefits.

The center will create a dedicated space on the east side of the terminal for rental car buses to park and wait for passengers. In doing so, it will improve traffic flow in front of the terminal and reduce the amount of time spent circling the airport.

The new center will break ground this month and open sometime next year.

Currently a dozen or more rental car buses circle the airport at any one time.

The center is expected to cost $3 million, which will be paid from fees generated by car rentals at the airport. The airport board approved construction last week.
