Getting to KSC without a car

Hi, I would like to see the Space Shuttle launch in September and am having my first look at the travel options.

I am from Australia and don't want to drive while in the US (we drive on the left down here). Is there a way of getting to the KSC Visitor Centre on launch days without a car?

Many thanks

After you have priced your options (and most of the tours from Orlando will be unsuitable for launch trips) then price hiring a car for the day.

We drive on the left too, and I can assure you driving in the USA is probably easier for you than trying to drive in Britain on the left with our tiny roads/lanes etc. I remember looking into this for someone for the night launch recently and the only choice was a taxi and it was like $200 or more.

The only way we can help is knwing your starting off point and times.

Thanks for your replies psbcap and amanx.

The only thing I really want to do on this trip is see a space shuttle launch - preferably from the NASA causeway. I'll fit accommodation, a look at the KSC and other arrangements around this.

Since my original question I've found that Gator Tours offers a tour to view shuttle lauches from the causeway - this might be my best option. However, tickets are limited so I also need a viable Plan B in case I miss out.
