The Baltimore-Washington International Airport arrival halls are well equipped for their passengers, and there are several forms of ground transportation available.

This airport in American is located approximately 10 miles, or 16km south of Baltimore, and 32 miles, or 51km northeast of Washington, D.C. It is an airport in the state of Maryland, which is to the south of Pennsylvania, to the north of Virginia and to the east of West Virginia. It is also along the eastern coast of the United States of America. The city of Baltimore is particularly nearby the areas of Glen Burnie, Columbia, Ellicott City and Nottingham, and further to the northeast are the cities of Wilmington and Philadelphia.

The Baltimore-Washington International Airport is the perfect place to arrive for access to the city, as frequent buses and trains run from the airport terminals. The light rail station of the airport is found just outside of Terminal E, the international terminal, and trains to downtown Baltimore are available every half an hour. There is also another station about a mile from the terminal buildings, from where MARC trains and Amtrak trains are available for travel to many of the surrounding areas. Shuttle buses from the lower levels of the airport buildings provide free transport to the BWI Rail Station. From the lower levels as well, passengers can take public or private buses into the city, or to Washington and the other nearby counties, such as Annapolis. Taxis are considered as convenient as well, and will travel to all parts of Baltimore and even to further destinations, such as Washington, Gaithersburg, Ocean City, Bethesda and Philadelphia.

Arriving passengers who prefer to travel on their own can rent a car from one of the Baltimore-Washington International Airport car hire companies. They include Hertz, Budget, National, Alamo, Enterprise, Avis and Thrifty. The car hire companies are not found in the terminal buildings, but rather at their own location along Stoney Run Road and New Ridge Road. There are shuttle buses for the transport of passengers to this location, and the journey will take about ten minutes. The shuttles are found outside of the baggage reclaim areas, and are available every ten minutes. Quality vehicles can be hired from any of these companies. There are small and large sedan models available, as well as SUVs, minivans, passenger vans and luxury cars. A rented car is recommended for travelling the surrounding areas of the city, or for travel to further destinations, as the city centre of Baltimore can be hard to navigate.
