Columbus is a city in Southern Indiana.

Get in[edit]

Columbus lies adjacent to Interstate 65. The easiest exit to take, whether coming from the north or south is exit 68 at State Road 46 (also called Jonathan Moore Pike). Columbus has a municipal airport, but it is only used for private and the occasional charter flight. The nearest commercial airport is Indianapolis International Airport (IND). It is about a 60 minute drive from downtown Columbus. Louisville International Airport (SDF) is about a 75 minute drive. There is a daily bus that runs from Columbus to the bus station in downtown Indianapolis. It can be boarded at the "transportation depot" next to the county jail.

Get around[edit]

By phone[edit]

Most telephone numbers in Columbus consist of +1 812 plus a seven-digit number, but the city and its surrounding area are now served by an overlay complex of two area codes, with +1 930 being the second. A local or in-state telephone call now requires all 10 digits of the local number be dialed (omitting just the leading +1 from a local landline call).

Signage on many established businesses may still display the original seven-digit numbers; dial 812 before these if no area code is indicated.
