Other major area highways include US 1, 21, 76, 176, 178, 321, 378 and 601.

In fact Columbia's network of major highways serves us almost too well. Because Columbia is green year-round, with large ancient oaks, long-leaf pines and magnolia trees almost everywhere, getting a good look at the cityscape from any of those major highways is somewhat of a challenge.
Daily passenger and cargo airline service is provided through the Columbia Metropolitan Airport (CAE) 803-822-5010. Amtrak provides passenger train service 800-USA-RAIL and freight services I provided by Norfolk Southern Systems and CSX. Greyhound Bus Lines offers interstate bus service.
