Bradley Airport Ground Transportation Center (GTC)

The Bradley or Connecticut International Airport Rental Car Facility is a first-class place to start your road trip and admire all the gems New England has to offer. Covering 13.4 acres near Terminal A, it occupies most of the local Ground Transportation Center (GTC), which are both actually the same building. Inside, you'll find a dedicated 5-level quick-turnaround space for service areas, parking lots, and all sorts of rent-a-car operations, plus refueling, charging, and car washing amenities.

The GTC is located at 180 Schoephoester Road, Windsor Locks, CT 06096, and features convenient walking access to the main terminal. At the same time, it accommodates multiple rental car brands spanning several levels of the building: Avis, Budget, and Payless on Floor 2, Enterprise, National, and Alamo on Floor 3, and Hertz, Dollar, and Thrifty on Floor 4. So, you can count on a smooth pick-up and drop-off experience within the walls of the facility.

Directions

You will find it easy to navigate around Windsor Locks Airport Car Rental Center due to the well-designed surrounding transport links. Consider the popular directions below and use them for quick access to/from the facility during your next trip.

  • From Terminal A. Collect your luggage from the baggage claim area and continue to Level 2 by following the Rental Car signage inside the building. Enter Door #6 to access the 725-foot-long enclosed walkway that will take you to the Ground Transportation Center (GTC).
  • From Terminal B. First of all, go outside from the baggage claim area and catch the shuttle that will take you to Terminal A. Then, enter the building, go up to Level 2, and proceed to Door #6 to reach the Skybridge, which leads to rental car companies' counters.
  • From downtown by public transport. Get off on the curbside near the Departures Area, near Door #4, #5, or #6. Then, follow the Car Rental signage and continue to the GTC via the covered walkway.
  • From downtown by personal car. You first need to take care of where to leave your car - choose one of the nearby garages located on the territory of BDL Airport. After that, take the shuttle or walk to the GTC on foot, depending on how far you are from the facility.
  • Return to the GTC. Once the agreed rental time has expired, follow the roadway signage leading to the GTC to drop your vehicle off. After all related car-return procedures have been completed (the manager has accepted your car and given you a receipt), continue to Level 3 to reach the main terminal along the covered corridor.

Bradley Airport Rental Car Center map

The GTC offers a convenient centralized location, which greatly simplifies access from both nearby and more distant destinations. Positionally, the facility lies slightly to the west across the road from Terminal A (indicated in orange) and offers a fast Skybridge connection between. Terminal B is available northwest of GTC, which means you need to take a shuttle to Terminal A and then use a sheltered tunnel to get to your car rental company.

Passengers arriving with a personal car can leave it in one of the open parking lots - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 - or the multi-level garage (marked G). If you wish to return your vehicle at the end of your trip, use the Airport Connector from CT Route 20 or Schoephoester Rd when approaching from CT Route 75. The entrance is located on the southwest side of the building. For more information on getting to and from the GTC, see the map below.
