Take the Train to the Plane: The Top 10 Easiest to Get to Airports/Cities in the U.S.
Some European cities are known for their excellent downtown-to-airport rail service. Globetrotters typically cite services such as London’s Heathrow Express, Munich’s S-Bahn, Stockholm’s Arlanda Express, and Rome’s Leonardo Express as shining examples, yet little is said about getting to and from U.S. airports.
There are, however, numerous U.S. cities where airport access is just as convenient.
Here are the ten easiest to get to airports in the country.
Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International. The city’s MARTA system stops at the Domestic Terminal at the end of baggage claim. It’s a 20-minute ride to Midtown and 30 to Buckhead and Lenox. The system is open between 4:45 a.m. (6 a.m. on weekends) and 1 a.m., and a single ride costs $2.50.
Boston Logan International. The Silver Line Rapid Transit Bus Service, open from 5:30 a.m. to 12:30 a.m. and operated using dual-mode buses, takes passengers from the airport directly to South Station, the city’s central transportation hub, for a fare of $2.10 to $2.65. There are also shuttle buses to/from the Blue Line subway to each airport terminal.
Chicago O’Hare International. O’Hare offers passengers a free train, the Airport Transit System, which connects all terminals to a Metra station. Passengers can take the Metra into Chicago’s Union Station in about 25 minutes for a fare starting at $3.50. Additionally, the city’s CTA transit system will ferry passengers from O’Hare to the city’s Loop district in approximately 40 minutes for $2.25.
Cleveland Hopkins International. The city’s Regional Transit Authority’s Red Line is on the lower level of the airport’s terminal complex.
