Taking a shuttle from Bloomington to Indianapolis airport is an easy way to get from the Indiana college town to the closest major airport.
Shuttles depart from several stops in Bloomington, including a few Bloomington hotels and the IU campus. Shuttles arrive at the ground transportation center at IND, which is located across the street from the terminal building. The trip takes around an hour and a half, depending on traffic.
Two companies operate a shuttle from Bloomington to Indianapolis airport: Bloomington Shuttle and Star of America Shuttles.
Both of them operate regular shuttles during the day, usually at two hour intervals. Somewhat inconveniently, both shuttle services operate within 20 to 30 minutes of each other, so if your flight lands after they leave, you will have a long wait for the next shuttle.
The price of a ticket for a shuttle from Bloomington to Indianapolis airport depends on which shuttle company you choose and if you purchase a ticket online in advance. Star of America shuttles cost $15 each way regardless, while Bloomington Shuttle services cost $15 (plus a $1 booking fee) online, and $20 in person.
