What’s the best way to get around Charlotte?
Charlotte is one of North Carolina’s most pedestrian-friendly cities, and all major attractions are in close proximity to one another in the uptown area. There are plenty of bike rental stations too. Buses and trams run every 10 minutes between 05:00 and 01:30 every day and cost just a few dollars, so this is a good option if you want to make a longer journey through the city or to one of the outer boroughs.
