Central Tucson is only about 10 miles / 16 km north of Tucson International Airport and is made accessible by public bus, shared-ride vans, hotel shuttles and relatively inexpensive taxi cabs.
All of these services depart from the roadway on the lower level of the terminal forecourt and leave throughout the day.
