Airport Transportation Frequently Asked Questions

Refund Policy:

You may cancel your reservation and receive a full refund up until 24 hours before the start of the university break. We cannot process cancellations due to the fact that the Student Life Programs office is closed during all university breaks. Email to cancel.

For Departures:

You should register for a shuttle that is at least two hours before your scheduled flight time. The drive to the airport is usually 35-40 minutes depending on traffic. So a shuttle scheduled to leave at 2pm will arrive at the airport around 2:35-2:40.

For Arrivals:

The time indicated is the time the shuttle will leave the airport. If your flight gets in after the shuttle time, or close to that time (less than 15 minutes before), please select a later shuttle. For example, the 12pm shuttle will be leaving Dayton Airport at 12pm and a flight arrival time of 11:55am should register for the 3pm shuttle.

For Departures:

The Airport shuttle leaves from the Information Desk of the Stevens Student Center (SSC). Please arrive at least ten minutes before your scheduled departure. All shuttles must leave no later than fifteen minutes after the scheduled time.

For arrivals:

The Airport shuttle will pick you up outside of the baggage claim area at the Dayton International Airport. Please look for a Cedarville University vehicle.

Check the online ordering page to see transportation dates and which shuttle times are offered and available on those dates.

Getting Started (arrival to CU), Fall Break, Thanksgiving Break, Christmas Break, and Spring Break.

There is no deadline, however, there are a limited number of seats per shuttle. When the shuttle is full, it will no longer appear for purchase on the web page.

The Dayton International Airport is only 33 miles from campus while the Columbus and Cincinnati airports are over 60 miles from campus. We choose to provide shuttles to the Dayton airport because it is too costly to service rides to the other airports.

Students who are members of the Student Center Activity Board (SCAB) operate the service (schedule the shuttles and drivers, manage the online registration system and answer all airport transportation questions).

We charge $20 each way to cover the cost of vehicle rental ($.60 per mile) and labor cost for the shuttle drivers (minimum wage).
