Getting Around Greensboro

Planning a trip to Greensboro, NC involves figuring out how you're going to get there. However, it also involves knowing how you'll get around once you arrive.

Air Travel
If Greensboro is just one stop on your trek down the coast, you'll need to know where airports are for future traveling ventures. Fortunately, Greensboro is home to the Piedmont Triad International Airport, Air Harbor Airport and the May Airport. In nearby Winston-Salem, visitors will also find the Smith Reynolds Airport.

Amtrak runs to Greensboro, making it an easy-to-get-to travel destination. Generally, trains travel to other cities along the cost. There are a limited number of trains running daily, so visitors should be certain to arrive in plenty of time to make their train. Before boarding the train, passengers will be required to check-in, pick up their tickets, check-in their baggage and receive a parking pass if necessary. Some of the trains even have room available to carry passengers' bicycles.

If you don't have a car with which to get around, you'll probably need to take a bus to head from one tourist attraction to the next. The Greensboro Transit Authority provides buses that run down several routes including North Elm Street, Summit Avenue, Lawndale Connector, West Market Street and so forth. Frequent riders are also able to purchase a Regional Fare Value Card, which acts as admission onto the bus. Using a card is a more convenient way to get around than paying cash every time.

Car Rentals
After taking a long plane ride, some passengers might be looking forward to getting back in the driver's seat. The recognizable Enterprise Rent-A-Car has a presence in Greensboro for individuals looking to rent with a company they know. Triangle Rent a Car and Priceless Car Rental also provide similar services for tourists in the area. Individuals who are in need of a truck to rent can consult with Budget Truck Rental located on High Point Road for all of their needs.

Go the Nontraditional Route
Why not experience the great outdoors and get around Greensboro? You can skate, walk or bike on one of the PATH Foundation Trails. Check out Revolution Cycles NC to see if you are able to rent a bike to ride out to dinner or to your daily recreational activities. Visitors who are going to stay for awhile might want to consider purchasing a new bike as a reminder of their extended vacation.
