Getting to Wilmington

A few thoughts on transportation:


  • The closest airport is Philadelphia International. Baltimore's airport is a couple of hours away by car.

  • To get from PHL to Wilmington:

    • Taxis are available, at a price of course. Taxi services can be picked up at Zone 5 on the Commercial Transportation Roadway at the airport. (The ride is about 20-30 minutes).

    • Rental cars are available at PHL.

    • Shared rides and airport limos are popular choices. Sedan and Limousine services can be picked up at Zone 6 and Shared ride van services can be picked up at Zone 7 on the Commercial Transportation Roadway. For information regarding transportation go to the Ground Transportation Information desk which is located in each baggage claim area. You should have your luggage prior to making your reservations. The Potter Anderson firm recommends the following services, and also advises reserving in advance:

      Eagle Transportation Services
      800-669-5460
      302-325-4200

      Dave's Limousine Services
      (302) 762-5700

      Road Runner
      800-337-9551
      302-426-9551

  • If you are driving from PHL, here are the directions:

    • To the Hotel du Pont:
      • Take I-95 South through Chester to Wilmington.
        Follow I-95 South to Exit 7A marked "52 South, Delaware Avenue."
        Follow 11th Street in the middle lane through six traffic lights. Hotel du Pont is on the right. Valet parking is available at Hotel entrance. For self-parking, turn left on Orange Street; Car Park is on left.

    • To the Potter Anderson offices:
      • Take I-95 South to Wilmington, take the first Delaware Avenue exit. Turn left onto Delaware Avenue, then tbar left onto W. 11th Street. Turn left onto N. Market Street. Hercules Plaza (Potter Anderson's building) is at the corner of 13th and Market Streets.

  • Amtrak serves Wilmington for those on the Eastern seaboard.
