Getting Around Jacksonville 

Getting here is a breeze. And getting around is easy too!

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.

Planes

Trains

Amtrak offers a relaxing option to get to Jacksonville from around the state and from around the country. You'll have room to stretch, play, sleep or watch the scenery roll by. The Amtrak station is located north of downtown at 3570 Clifford Lane. www.amtrak.com

Automobiles

Interstate 95 runs north/south through Jacksonville: Interstate 10 runs east/west through Jacksonville; I-295 Makes a loop around Jacksonville; J. Turner Butler (JTB) provides an easy trek to the beach running east/west to and from Jacksonville and the beaches; I-75 is nearby and provides additional interstate connections.

 Buses

 The bus system was nice and very reasonable to use for a small fare.  When you're using the system make sure you ask other patrons what side of the road to get to your destination.  The customer service on their downtown system uses the symbols, but many times the same symbols are on both sides of the street.
