Indianapolis International Airport

The Indianapolis International Airport is about 55 miles north of Bloomington.

Ground Transportation from Airport

The drive to Bloomington is about one hour by car or limo; it can be longer by shuttle bus or van which make stops at several Bloomington hotels.

You may plan to use Bloomington Shuttle Service if you arrive during their service hours; or request limo service if you arrive after hours. Both Bloomington Shuttle Service and the limousine services leave from the Ground Transportation Center, located in the airport parking structure. Signs for the Ground Transportation Center may be seen throughout the airport.

To reach the Ground Transportation Center, exit the airport terminal through the doors opposite Baggage Claim Carousel Number Two (2). You will cross several lanes of traffic before arriving at the parking structure. To your right, you will find a blue, steel and glass structure called the Ground Transportation Center. Several limousine services, shuttle services, and taxi services have information booths located inside. Locate the booth for your transportation carrier and identify yourself to the available agent.

For a map of the lower level of the airport that shows the location of Ground Transportation and the baggage claim carousels, follow this link.
