Getting Around Jacksonville 

Getting here is a breeze. And getting around is easy too! Buses run throughout Jacksonville and do a good job of covering most areas of town. Try to plan ahead when using the bus as many stops don't have schedules posted. Schedules and maps can be found on the Jacksonville Transporation Authority's website.

In addition to planes, trains and automobiles, you can visit shops and restaurants by water taxi, search for craft treasures via the monorail skyway system or catch a quick lift on a downtown trolley.
