Also, Hagerstown regional airport is roughly 45 minutes away and offers commercial flights as well. Carroll County Regional Airport, right in Westminster, does not offer commercial service.

By Car: Westminster is easily accessible by Rt. 140.

To get around Westminster, a small bus service “CATS” (Carroll Area Transit System) occasionally runs through town, but it can be a little hard to find. So the best way to go is to rent a car. Enterprise rent-a-cars are available.
