Transportation to Manama (Bahrain) Airport from the City Center

The main means of transport used in the city are buses and taxis. The buses are very economical and practical. It is possible to reach the airport with one or two bus transfers from the city center or from a further distance. Because of the two most important terminals (Muharraq and Manama terminals) there are buses departing directly to Bahrain Airport every 20 minutes. Apart from that, taxis, car rental services and minibuses are among the other transportation options.

Bus

Buses at the top of the main transportation vehicles in the city are public transportation vehicles which are very convenient for the budget and transportation. With Bahrain buses that are air-conditioned, spacious and comfortable, you can go directly or indirectly to everywhere you wish. Bus ticket prices usually start at 0.20 Bahrain Dinar. Manama bus station is located on Government Avenue.

The prices of Bahrain buses vary between 0.15-0.40 dinars on average. But most of the buses usually get 0.20 dinars for a single fare. The city has 23 different routes for buses with a total of 15 different lines. Buses that go directly to the airport depart from the stop that is about 200 meters west of Regency Intercontinental. For further information, you can call the Bahrain bus company (+973 17 534534).

Minibus

The use of minibuses in Bahrain is at least as popular as the buses. It is much more economical to get to the airport with the minibuses you can encounter in almost every corner of the city. Because the average ticket prices for these minibuses that are not connected to any business vary between 0.15-0.20 dinars. Sometimes even bargaining with drivers can be done. Minibuses with less capacity than buses can be crowded during heavy traffic hours.

Taxi

The fact that oil is cheap in the country does not, unfortunately, provide a discount on taxi fares. On the contrary, the fares are extremely expensive compared to many other cities and countries. So it's your benefit that you do not use the taxi unless you have to. In particular, Bahrain's locals prefer to use their own and not to spend unnecessary money on the taxis. The main taxi companies you can call from any point in the city are Speedy Motors (+973 17682999), Bahrain Limo (+973 17266266) and Arabian Taxi (+973 17461746). Taxis in the city are opening taximeters at a cheaper rate compared to airport taxis: 1 dinar.

Car Rental

The roads throughout Bahrain are asphalt and well maintained. At the same time, oil is so cheap that it offers a great advantage in terms of car rental companies. Because tourists who visit the country prefer not to waste their time on underdeveloped public transport, and prefer to widen their choices, they rent a car. Because of this, there are many offices of international and local car rental companies both in the city and at the airport.
