BWI Notes

November 05, 2001

Parking lot opens; bus service links to Greenbelt Metro

With Thanksgiving travel days fast approaching, passengers using Baltimore-Washington International Airport will find new services aimed at making traveling easier.

The new daily parking lot at Elm Road and Aviation Boulevard is to open today. The lot will provide passengers with additional options for parking when visiting the airport at a cost of $2 an hour, $11 a day.

Travelers will also have new access to the Washington subway system when the BWI Express bus service begins Nov. 13. The service will provide a direct connection between BWI and the Greenbelt Metro Station.

The bus service will be offered seven days a week in 40-minute intervals in both directions. The first bus out of Greenbelt will be at 6 a.m., after meeting the first Metro train from Washington. The last bus out of BWI will be at 10:50 p.m., and will meet the last Metro train to Washington.

The bus service will have a direct route along Baltimore-Washington Parkway to Interstate 195. Roundtrip fare is $3.15.

Pan Am to launch route connecting BWI, Bangor

Pan American Airways will begin offering flights between Bangor, Maine and BWI on Dec. 6.

"This Bangor-to-BWI route sets the stage for new economic opportunities between Maryland, Maine and its surrounding states in the Northeast," Gov. Parris N. Glendening said.

After the airline's service to Maine starts, BWI passengers will be able to connect to Pan Am's affiliate, Boston-Maine Airways, for service to Hagerstown and Cumberland. Pan Am plans to coordinate its operations in St. Petersburg-Clearwater and Orlando Sanford with those of Boston-Maine Airways to offer direct connections to Maryland and Florida destinations, including Naples, by the end of the year.
