Introducing our Ground Transportation Center

Bradley International Airport is improving your travel experience, with a new on-site hub for parking and transportation beyond your flight.

The $210 million state-of-the-art facility is designed with an inspiring visual nod to Connecticut’s nature and history — and it’s one of our biggest undertakings yet to make Bradley the go-to airport and economic driver in the region.


Convenient Rental Car Services Across from Terminal A

  • All car rental services are now consolidated in this facility and within a short walking distance from the terminal. The facility replaces the current off-airport rental car facilities and eliminates the need for passengers to use shuttles to access their rental cars. For more information, please click here.
  • Wheelchair assistance is available to the Ground Transportation Center. You can request service through your airline upon landing at Bradley, or at the rental car counter when returning your vehicle.

Additional Public Parking

  • The facility includes 830 new public parking spots. More than half of these spaces offer covered parking and the remainder are surface parking spots next to the facility. To view information on parking options, please click here.

The new Ground Transportation Center

The Ground Transportation Center’s design is inspired by the region’s natural beauty and includes elements that tie to the airport’s surroundings.

 “With the opening of the Ground Transportation Center, we have made a significant investment in the passenger experience at Bradley International Airport. In addition to transforming the airport footprint, the facility will streamline operations, save time for passengers, improve access to public transportation, while also eliminating traffic congestion and easing access to our arrivals and departures levels.”
