    Transportation

    Whether arriving by air or by highway, getting to Lexington is easy, and so is getting around while you are here. Lexington's Blue Grass Airport, a 10-minute drive from downtown, is located near Keeneland Race Course and surrounded by horse farms -- creating one of America's most beautiful air approaches. A number of car rental companies have airport locations.

    In the downtown area, many attractions, restaurants and shops are within walking distance of major hotels. All the buildings surrounding Triangle Park in the heart of downtown are connected by pedways. An intra-city bus system (Lextran: 859-253-4636 or www.lextran.com) and taxicabs (859-231-8294 or 859-381-1010) provide convenient transportation. "Colt", Lexington's new downtown trolley system is an easy way to get around, and it is free!. There is a Greyhound Bus station on the north side of town (859-299-8804 or 800-231-2222). Miller Trailways offers inexpensive shuttle service between Lexington and Louisville. Taking a tour by van is a great way to see horse country.
