How to get from the airport to the city centre?

There are several different transport options you can take to travel the 8 mile distance between the airport and the centre, one of the most popular being the train. The Green Line will take you to and from the airport itself and the train operates for the best part of all day. If you decide the train isn’t for you, then you can jump on the X77, X78 or X79 buses. These all go to the centre and you can find them at bus stop B6918. Another option is to get an official taxi from outside of the airport. These are more expensive than the bus or train, but they can hold upto 5 passengers, so splitting the fare can make it more worthwhile. Lastly you could use the Uber service. These are similar to taxi’s although they are usually cheaper and you’ll need to download the Uber app for your smartphone to order one.
