Getting Here, Getting Around
If you arrive by commercial airline, you will likely fly into Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta or the Columbus Metropolitan Airport in Columbus. The Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) partners with Groome Transportation to offer affordable, round-the-clock shuttle service from both facilities. For more information about Groome, call 706-324-3939 or 800-584-6735.
You will have no problem accessing the post with your military ID at any gate. If you do not have a military identification card, you will stop at the Visitors’ Center at the 185 gate to acquire a pass. All passengers in your vehicle who are 16 and older should be prepared to show a photo ID. Soldiers and family members with military ID can enter the post from Interstate 185 south, Benning Road (just south of the National Infantry Museum) or Highway 280/27 at Harmony Church.
