America has a fully functioning, well developed public transportation system. Whether by train, bus, streetcar, subway, or taxi you can get pretty much wherever you need to go in a reasonable amount of time if you plan ahead. Depending on your city you should have access to several different options of transportation to suit your travel budget. The most popular choice for students is usually taking the bus. The price varies according to your city and state so be sure to check local fares upon your arrival.
