Map for Passengers
The Stuttgart Airport Busterminal (SAB) is located directly between Flughafenstrasse and Terminal 4 of Stuttgart Airport. It is located at ground level beneath the newly built P14 car garage. The three lanes include a total of 18 bus platforms, with platforms 1 to 3 serving regional transport. National and international long-distance bus services leave from platforms 4 to 18, along with non-scheduled Services.
The bus terminal is protected against wind and weather, with the P14 car garage offering complete protection against rain and snowfall. Passengers can wait for their buses in a heated waiting room, complete with a bistro and a kiosk for travel items. There are also two ticket and service offices. Restrooms are of course also available.
The bus terminal is just one street away from the airport, meaning that passengers can also use the services provided in the terminal building. If there is no suitable connection to continue your journey after you arrive, the Mövenpick Stuttgart Airport & Messe and Wyndham Stuttgart Airport Messe hotels are both located within 300 meters. After a good night’s sleep, you will be refreshed and ready to continue your journey the following day.
There are many different ways to reach the Stuttgart Airport Busterminal. Located close to the A8 autobahn and the B27 highway, arriving by car is easy. As a transport hub however, Stuttgart Airport offers plenty of alternatives. Arriving by bus has been made easier, with a dedicated bus and train station for local, regional and long-distance bus services right on the doorstep of the Airport.
In future, there will also be more options for arriving by rail. Alongside the current local train station (S-Bahn) at the airport, there will also be a tram terminal nearby from 2019. The Stuttgart 21 rail project will also see the construction of a station for high-speed ICE trains. All this will be less than 500 m away from the bus terminal, and therefore easily within walking distance.
Whether you prefer to use you own car or public transport, the completion of the bus terminal and the local and long-distance train stations will turn Stuttgart Airport City into an unrivaled transport hub.
