Airport to City - Bangor

We will be spending eight days in Maine, flying in and busing out. We will have to return the rent-a-car to the airport and then go by public transport or taxi to bus depot. We're spending the first night at the Motel 6 near the airport, so maybe it would be better to get a taxi there and back to airport, and then go to downtown Bangor to rent a car??? (Those extra car days are usually expensive!)

Suggestions appreciated, Thanks, Mister Q

Not sure why you are staying at the motel 6 in Bangor, (budget restrictions, perhaps?) The motel itself is situated directly in front of a railroad track and does not get rave reviews on Trip Advisor.

Why not select a hotel with a free airport shuttle? flybangor.com/content/4040/Hotel_Shuttles/

Dont' spend your money on taxi fare or a night's sleep in a dirty motel.

Car rentals can be more expensive at an airport, that's for sure.

Thanks for your comments. However, they do not address the question. It is not a question about accommodation. It is a multi-question about transport logistics.

Like: How do you get to downtown from the Bangor airport?

Are there auto rental places downtown Bangor?

(extra days beyond a week are a lot more than daily average of the weekly rent.)

Thanks, Mister Qta

You can get to downtown Bangor via city transit, (BAT), or by taxi. flybangor.com/content/…

Enterprise Car rental is a 7 min drive away from the airport on Hammond St

I was addressing your own question regarding transport logistics when you questioned "maybe it would better to get a taxi there and back to the airport" when I commented on staying at a hotel with shuttle service.

How come this is on the Ogunquit board? Bangor's a loooong way away ...
