The Charleston International Airport is located about a half hour from downtown Charleston by car. Taxis cost about $30, while shuttles—which run every fifteen minutes and don't require reservations—cost $14 per passenger.

Downtown Charleston is easily navigable by foot and bicycle, with taxis and pedicabs available for farther-flung or late-night trips. Public transit can be tricky to navigate, so car rentals are your best bet for destinations beyond the peninsula.
