Located approximately 20 minutes from International Drive — the heart of our tourism district — Orlando International Airport works with more than 40 scheduled airlines to provide nonstop service from over 150 international and domestic destinations. What’s more, airfares at MCO are among the lowest of the 50 largest airports in the U.S.
Also servicing the area is Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB). It’s located 18 miles northeast of Orlando, approximately 45 minutes from our tourism district. If you prefer rail travel, Amtrak provides service via its station in downtown Orlando. Our commuter rail service, SunRail, connects key cities along our main corridor. And starting in 2022, Brightline will connect Orlando to south Florida with express-rail service.
Once you’ve reached Orlando, you can choose from a robust selection of public transportation, rental-car providers and even ride-share options such as Lyft and Uber, which can pick up and drop off at MCO, theme parks, attractions and everywhere else you’ll want to visit. You can also hop on the fun and affordable I-Ride Trolley, which runs on and around International Drive and costs a maximum of $2 per ride. Several hotels in our tourism district also offer shuttle services to guests, and tours to attractions outside the immediate Orlando area are also available.

If you’re doing the driving, there’s no need to worry about getting lost, as several major highways offer convenient access to area attractions. And now, I-4 Express is making it easier than ever to get around. Part of Orlando’s section of Interstate 4 (I-4), this new option consists of tolled lanes, two in each direction, between Kirkman Road (State Road 435) and State Road 434. By helping to reduce roadway congestion, the new express lanes provide more efficient traveling options for commuters and visitors to Orlando.
