Directions To Hartford Bradley Airport

Bradley International Airport is located midway between Hartford, Connecticut, and Springfield, Massachusetts, so there are a wide variety of ways to get to the airport no matter where you're coming from.

By car: Bradley Airport is easily accessible off exit 40 of I-91. If you are coming from the north, all you need to do is take I-91 south.

If you are coming from the south, such as from New York City, take I-95 north, then change to I-91 south in New Haven. Alternatively, take Route 15 north to I-91.

If you are coming from Boston or other cities to the east, take the Mass Turnpike (I-90) west, then change to I-84 west. Change to I-291 west, and then take I-91 north to exit 40.

If you are coming from the west, take I-84 east until you can get on I-91 north.

By taxi: There is no special airport fare for taxis going to Bradley from Springfield or Hartford. You will pay the regular metered fare.

By bus: Two public bus lines link Hartford with Bradley Airport, the 30 and 34. The 30, nicknamed the "Bradley Flyer," provides express service between downtown Hartford and the airport. Unfortunately, there is no local bus service between Springfield and Bradley. Peter Pan Buses formerly offered service between Springfield and Bradley but no longer does so.

Area companies including Valley Transporter, Go Airport Shuttle, Seemo Shuttle, and CT Limo offer door-to-door bus, van, and car service to Bradley Airport. Call or go online for more details or to book a ride.

By train: Amtrak's Windsor Locks station is only two miles from Bradley Airport, and taxis and shuttle buses link the two. Amtrak's New Haven-Hartford-Springfield shuttle train line stops at Windsor Locks, and offers cheaper fares and a faster ride than long-haul Amtrak trains.

Amtrak also has a Windsor train station which connects to Connecticut Transit's 34 bus, mentioned above.
