Buses drop off and pick up riders at both McNamara and Evans Terminals.

At the McNamara Terminal

AirRide picks up and drops off on the Departures Level, curbside near the “International Ticketing/Check-In” door for Air France and Aeromexico.

Riders arriving on Delta, Air France, or Aeromexico flights with checked baggage will need to follow signs to the Baggage Claim area. Then proceed up two levels to the Departures Level. You will find the AirRide stop just outside the Ticketing/Check-In Door #1 next to Air France and Aeromexico. If using the elevator, select the "Ticketing Level."

When exiting the terminal, turn left and look for our buses. Wayfinding signs are marked “Municipal Transportation" at the curb.
