Ground Transportation

This is a rural area and there is not much in the way of public transportation. We highly recommend that you get a rental car. There are at least two local taxi companies. However, you must call for service on the telephone and wait times for pickup can be excessive. Taxis are not metered and the rates are set by the dispatcher based on your origination and destination. Be sure to ask for the rate when requesting the pickup on the phone.
