Traveling to True/False

GETTING TO COLUMBIA

With connections through Chicago and Dallas/Forth Worth offered by American Airlines, flying into Columbia Regional Airport (COU) is more affordable and convenient than ever. The airport is just 10 miles south of town, with inexpensive taxi service available to all festival hotels; many hotels also offer a free shuttle service to and from the airport. We’re proud of our hometown airport and recommend it as the best way to fly to True/False.

For those who'd rather fly non-stop, Columbia is slap dab between two major airports: Kansas City International (MCI) or St. Louis International (STL) airport. Shuttles serve both airports, providing ground transportation from the airport to Columbia (approx. 2 hour drive). Schedule and rate information can be found on their websites: MO-X, & EZGO Bus.

WEATHER

This is the Show-Me State. Sometimes you're best served by just sticking your head out the window to see what Mother Nature's served up. That doesn't help you much if you're packing for your trip, though. So, plan for late winter temperatures hovering around the high 30s or low 40s. Pack your coat and mittens, but take solace in the fact that it's only a short stroll between all of the screenings and special events.
