Traveling around Kentucky or major cities is a must when visiting the Bluegrass State. If you’re looking for public transportation, you can take a bus, taxi, or train to travel across the state or within major cities. 

The Amtrak train runs two lines, offering a fun travel and scenic view when stopping at Louisville, Maysville, Fulton, Ashland, and South Core. Although they are not the fastest system to get around Kentucky.

The Greyhound bus is another option that offers cheap fares and is a practical way to travel between cities.

If you prefer private transportation, you can either rent a car or ship your own vehicle. The largest car rental companies are at every airport in the state, so you have a wide range of options to choose from. Also, you can ship your car if you’re staying for an extended period. If you do good company research, you'll get reasonable rates and times for your vehicle’s pickup and delivery.
