The Office of Global Education, in conjunction with LTS Airport Service, will be providing transportation to the KSU Campus for our international students flying into either Cleveland Hopkins (CLE) or Akron-Canton (CAK) airports.
RESERVATION POLICY Transportation must be pre-arranged and paid for in advance… just complete the following form and make payment online.
All transportation will be “shared ride” which means that you will be riding with other students that are scheduled to arrive within 1 hour, of your arrival time, but is subject to change due to airline delays, etc. Your cost for this service will be $50 (USD) and includes all taxes, tolls, and tips. Payment is due when the reservation is made.
CANCELLATION POLICY You can cancel up to 2 hours prior to the scheduled arrival time, and your payment will be refunded.
NOTE! The ARRIVAL DATE is the day that your plane lands, NOT the day that it takes off!
When arriving at CLE airport, retrieve your luggage and wait at the Information counter in the middle of the baggage level (inside the terminal).
When arriving at CAK airport, retrieve your luggage and wait inside of door #6 (near the end of the baggage area). Your driver will meet you there holding a “Kent State University” sign.
Any transportation issues, call LTS at
