I live in Riverside, CA near Los Angeles and fly a lot to ATL. Once I'm in ATL, I can hop on the MARTA and be to my business destination at Buckhead within a few minutes. No car rental or taxi/shuttle hassles.

I really wish LA would get its act together and connect our Metrolink to LAX or one of the other airports. I could just hop on the train and not have to worry about traffic or parking. I'm wondering if LA has the only major big city airport not to have any transportation to the airport other than by road.

Miami's MetroRail heavy-rail/subway system will be extended to the airport. It was approved last November. Should be ready by 2011.

I know people that would offer first born children if WMATA would extend the Metrorail to IAD. Its been "in planning" for at least a decade.

Of course... we enjoy service on two lines to DCA - what I am convinced is the single most convenient airport in the world.

LGA is short on any rail links to Manhattan, and JFK is only just about to get one.

LAS does not have one, though the city is talking about joining forces with the city's monorail builders to do just that.

SEA is building one, but the people of the city do not want the one the city wants to build, and it's tied up in court (people want monorail, city council wants sub-terranian light-rail).

I am not aware of any rail links to PHX.

MCI is so dependent upon cars and shuttles it's not funny. The city bus runs only once an hour and then it's only a shuttle to Barry Road, which is still 15 miles from downtown, then making you transfer two more times before you get to downtown.

I definitely agree with Gigneil about DCA. Of airports I've been to, DCA is absolutely the most convenient. It's basically walking distance from the mall, Smithsonian, Capitol building, etc. Plus the metro is right there to take you even faster.

boston's logan airport, which can often be a very frustrating airport, does have several options for commuting from the city to the airport. passengers can drive, take several different bus services, take the subway, or take a water taxi. actually, the water taxi and subway services are pretty good and reliable, although once on the airport grounds you have to jump on an airport bus to the actual terminal. before the city opened the new turnpike connection to the airport (part of the big dig), the subway and water taxi were the best methods of getting to and from the airport, especially at peak times.

Heathrow Express
BAA's Heathrow Express is the revolutionary, non-stop train service between Heathrow Airport and Paddington station in the heart of London. It's just 15 minutes to and from Terminals 1, 2 and 3, and five minutes more to and from Terminal 4. Convenient and reliable, trains depart every 15 minutes, 365 days a year.

BART in the San Francisco Bay Area just opened up a station at SFO.
I think Chicago and Dallas might also have links to their respective airports. I will double check and then post later.

ORD also will take you from the airport to downtown via train. As long and noisy as it is, I remember many times looking out the window as I passed by bumper to bumper traffic not going anywhere.

I think that SFO is workin to extend the public transportation system to the airport. Not sure if that project is completed or not, but I think it is supposed to open soon.

MAH4546, where will metrorail be extended from? are there any other stations planned. I drove by the new station and it looks really nice.

PHL has SEPTA's R1 line to the airport and serves all the terminals except terminal F.

Due to budget cuts SEPTA wants to eliminate the service but the airport is begging them not to, because so many airport employee's depend on the train. Not as many passengers use it.

I just checked the Dallas Area Rapid Transit and they do have service on the Trinity Railway Express which runs from downtown Dallas all the way to downtown Fort Worth with DFW as a stop. The only downside is that it does not run on Sunday  Sad
There is no rail link to Lovefield.

Zurich Switzerland has an amazing system.
from the airport train station there are trains to literally everywhere in Switzerland and also Munich, Germany, and one which travels through all of Austria (Innsbruck, Salzburg, Vienna and on to Bratislava)

There is also the Bus station, with bus' to just about eveywhere in the greater Zurich area.

The best part is that the tyrainstation is literaly inside the terminal.

ZRH has an excellent rail link not only to the city center but also to all corners of Switzerland and to destinations in Germany, Austria, France and Italy.

Passengers flying with Swiss can check their luggage at the railway station where they are starting their trip and check it to their final destination. For instance, you can check your luggage in Zermatt and pick it up in Buenos Aires. It is one of the most efficient and user friendly rail links in operation, they virtually run a "Hauptbahnhof" under the airport.

If you read the original quesiton, they were asking about cities that do not have metro rail links to the airport.

This is, however, good information to know...
