How to get around in Charlotte?

Car Rental

While Charlotte transportation options are plentiful, the best way to get around is by renting a car. The city transit system is minimally connected, so you will spend more time waiting or walking than riding public transportation. Renting a car is the most cost-effective solution because you can stop and explore as you wish. Uptown is laid out in a grid, which makes navigation simple. I-485 and I-277 will be your most used interstates to get around.

Taxis

Taxis are available from the city as well, and they are regulated by the city. There is a drop charge of $2.50 USD, and you are charged for every one-fifth of a mile at $0.50 during rush hours, and $0.50 USD per minute spent in traffic.

Light Rail

The LYNX Blue Line light rail commutes from Uptown to Mecklenburg County. It stops at all the main uptown destinations, and the trains run every 7 to 10 minutes on the weekdays and 20 – 30 minutes during weekends. Fares are $2.20 USD for one-way tickets and $6.60 USD for a day pass. Tickets are valid for 90 minutes and you can transfer to a CATS bus.

Buses

CATS (Charlotte Area Transit System) operates throughout Charlotte. Most leave the Uptown Transportation Center and head toward suburbs. They are not the most efficient means for travel, and cost $2.20 USD one-way, while $3 USD is for express buses and $0.90 USD for shuttles. A one-leg trip takes 45 minutes, while a two-leg trip can be as long as 2 hours.


What are the visa and passport requirements when flying to Charlotte?

No visa is required for domestic travelers within the U.S. For foreign nationals, please check the U.S. Department of State website.
