Bari Airport has no train connection, but the Tempesta buses (see below) go to the train station in the city. An express train runs from Bari to places including Naples and Rome.
Car and bus
The airport is accessible from the ring road around Bari, from the north you follow the direction of Foggia, and from the south you follow the SP 271. From Foggia you can reach the airport from the highway SS16 where the exit to the airport is clearly indicated.
There are two bus connections with the airport. There is the regular city bus (Amtab line 16) that makes several stops including Via Capitaneo, Via Ranieri and Via Diaz, on average you have to wait an hour for the Amtab bus to leave. The shuttle bus (Tempesta) is more expensive, but it runs often and takes you directly to the city center (Piazza Aldo Moro).
