Birmingham, Alabama, unites. People flock to this city for its historical significance, hospitable climate, and natural wonders. From iron to civil rights, Birmingham is a living history book. Vulcan—the world’s largest cast-iron statue—and the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute both educate visitors about the city’s past. Flights to Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport (BHM) are full of families heading to this popular reunion destination and fishermen eager to test their abilities in “The Bass Capital of the World.”
Transportation From BHM
Getting from BHM to downtown after your Birmingham flight lands is a snap. If you rented a car as part of your Birmingham vacation package, the rental car facility is located in sections 1B and 1C of the parking deck. You can pick up your keys at the courtesy counter and jump in your car parked nearby. If you are taking a cab to your final destination, BHM taxi services are located outside the baggage claim on ground level; several independently owned and operated cab companies serve the city and airport. If you’d rather take a shuttle or a limousine, head across the pedestrian walkway from the baggage claim area—just make sure that you secured those services in advance. A public bus runs between BHM and Central Station downtown, and you can catch the Route 20 bus between the rental car facilities and shuttle stands by Parking Lot C. There is not a public transportation counter at BHM, so get your ticket right from the bus driver.
