It’s the day of your flight and you’re worried about TSA, getting to your gate and if your plane is on time. But have you considered how you’re getting to the airport?
For some people, it’s the first thing they decide. For others, it’s the last. For those in the latter category, don’t worry: South Bend International Airport (SBN) has options for every passenger.
SBN’s Transportation Options
From train to taxis and even ride-sharing options like Uber and Lyft, SBN offers a range of options to get you to your next destination.
Need a Lyft? Or an Uber?
Probably one of our more popular options, Lyft and Uber are permitted at the South Bend International Airport.
Schedule a ride from the comfort of your smartphone, with drivers arriving at your pickup location within minutes. Ridesharing is a low-cost, easy option for families and business professionals on the go — no need to hail a taxi when you can do it from your phone!
Driving Yourself? Our Parking Options
We’ve mentioned before how affordable our parking is, but it bears repeating: choosing to fly local with SBN ensures you’re getting great parking, minutes from the terminal, at prices that won’t break the bank.
For short-term parking, our maximum daily rate is $14, and it’s only a minute away from the terminal. For long-term parking, our weekly maximum rate is $45. Compared to other major airports in the region that charge $70 a week, that’s a major savings! Plus, the furthest walk to our terminal clocks out at less than five minutes, so you’re never forced to park remotely for a better price.
If you want a firmer look at parking prices, check out the parking estimator on our website. There you’ll be able to plug in your dates and get price estimates broken down by short-term and long-term parking as well as valet service.
Hail a Cab
Taxi service is available for passengers at SBN. All taxis servicing SBN are licensed and authorized by the City of South Bend and approved by the airport to operate on the property. All available taxis wait for passengers on the main drive outside the front entrance.
We offer taxi services from Modern/Eagle Cab Co. or United Cab. To contact Modern/Eagle, call (574) 400-9621 or United Cab at (574) 233-9599.
Travel By Train
SBN is connected to downtown Chicago and major cities throughout Northwestern Indiana by way of the South Shore rail line, operated by the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District (NICTD), which means SBN is accessible anywhere in the Michiana region!
Leaving for your next destination from SBN is simple — and affordable! Tickets can be purchased by credit card online or at the east end of the airport terminal. You can also pay with cash to the conductor on the train.
Please make sure to check out the South Shore rail line website for up-to-date schedule information.
