Getting to and from Birmingham airport

Arriving at the car park

When you arrive at the car park a friendly member of the team will check you in and let you know where to park. You park your car so you get to keep your keys while you're away.

Then all you need to do is catch the bus from the nearest bus stop to the terminal. The buses run every 10 minutes, 24 hours a day, and take 5 minutes to reach the airport.

Returning to the car park

Give Short Run a call when you get to bus stop A so they can send the bus to collect you. You'll then be dropped off in the zone where you parked your car, so there's only a short distance to walk.
