Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW) is served by most major rental car agencies. The rental car campus is located on the northeast corner of the Airport along Lucas Drive, where each brand (or group of brands) operates its own facility connected to the terminals by their own courtesy shuttles.
All rental car shuttles pick-up and drop-off at each terminal’s Ground Transportation Center. To access your rental car agency, once you have claimed any checked luggage, follow terminal signs to Ground Transportation.
Advanced reservations are strongly recommended, however, courtesy phones for contacting each agency are located in each terminal’s baggage claim and Ground Transportation Center. There are no rental car desks inside the terminals.
Public bus service connects DTW Airport with the surrounding region from stops located at each airport terminal:
- North Terminal: Ground Transportation Center
- McNamara Terminal: Ground Transportation Center
AirRide and SMART transportation services are now located in the McNamara Ground Transportation Center.
