"The project team did it right by creating a rental car facility that elevates the rental customer experience at CVG. Constructing a facility which eliminates shuttle buses, where customers can now walk from the plane to their rental car quickly and completely sheltered from the elements, addresses the biggest concern expressed by our customers when flying to CVG. This is a world class upgrade."
