We park at long term and have a bus every 30 min... if you time it right you can do it in 25 min or so... if not upwards of 50-55. It isn't fun.

If you miss bus, take air train. 25-45 mins. Including walk to kcm

Must be lucky here.

Iím consistently 20 min car to gate. But I always take the air train.

There are many variables....Time of year, time of day, outside conditions. Rainy day, busy season, 5:30am is probably the worst setup.

Airtrain could be running on one of it's infinite schedules. Every 5 minutes to every 15 (single track). Once you're on the air train it's about 15 mins to terminal + 5 min walk to security + 5 to gate.

The bus takes 10-15 to the terminal + 5-10min to make it through security and to gate.

Bus leaves every half hour. Without traffic it takes about 7-10min to the terminal curbside. AirTrain runs every few minutes but takes about 20 minutes with stops to get curbside from long term lot. Through trial and error, Iíve found that if you miss the shuttle by more than 10 minutes, itís quicker to wait the additional 20min for the next one, than to take the next AirTrain (and itíll save you the long walk from the T5 AirTrain station). Also, the shuttle bus pulls up in front of terminal allowing you to geo-check in on the app while still in the shuttle. The AirTrain, often not. Add about 5 min these numbers to get to the gate
