Getting to Fort Wayne
The Grand Wayne Center is a 20 minute drive from the Fort Wayne International Airport (FWA). There are numerous taxi and car rental services available at the airport. As FWA is a small airport, we would recommend booking your flights soon if you plan on flying to Fort Wayne. Alternatively, Fort Wayne is only a couple hours' drive or bus ride from the major airports of ORD and MDW in Chicago, DTW in Detroit, CMH in Columbus, and IND in Indianapolis.
There is a parking garage on the corner of Jefferson Blvd. and Calhoun St. which is connected to the Hilton Hotel and Grand Wayne Center by skybridge, accessible on the 3rd level of the garage. Alternatively, there is metered parking on the streets all around Downtown, and this is free on weekends.
The Fort Wayne Greyhound station is conveniently located half a mile from the Grand Wayne Center.
