Charleston Travel Guide

Getting Around Charleston

Charleston is fairly compact and it is easy to explore many attractions on foot or on a rented bicycle. To visit plantations and other attractions outside the city, however, a car is the best option. In the city a bus service covers most areas, running from 5.35am until 10pm for a fare of $1.25. CARTA (Charleston Area Regional Transportation Authority) buses cover the central downtown area at a single fare of $1.50, or a day pass for $4. A novel and fun way to see the city is also to ride in a horse-drawn carriage. Taxis are available but must be called for.
