Directions

Getting to Bowling Green:

If you’re flying in to join us, you will probably want to fly into either Toledo or Detroit Metropolitan Airport.  The Toledo airport is 25 minutes away from Bowling Green, but compared with Detroit, the fares are often higher and it is less likely that you’ll find a direct flight from your local airport. Getting to Bowling Green from the Detroit airport, however, requires a bit longer drive (about an hour and a quarter).

A shuttle is available to Bowling Green from both airports. The shuttle fee will vary depending upon the airport from/to which you are being transported.  For details and to arrange a pick-up, contact:

The fee is $52 one way from Toledo airport to your destination in Bowling Green, ($35 each if the ride is shared) and $110 ($70 each for a shared ride) from Detroit airport.
