Cornwall is a very easy and safe city to get around in. The city has a well designed network of streets, sidewalks and recreational paths.
Using a Car
Many residents choose to use a car to get from their house to work, school and elsewhere. You will need a valid Driver’s Licence in order to operate a car.
Taking the Bus
Cornwall has a very efficient public transportation system called Cornwall Transit. In order to take the bus you must purchase a ticket or a transit pass.
Taking a Taxi
Cornwall has a number of companies that offer taxi service. Taxis have meters that calculate the cost of your trip. The longer the trip, the more expensive the fare. If you want to know how much your trip will cost, ask the driver before the trip starts. Many drivers will also hope for a tip, especially if they help you with lots of bags. Taxis can be expensive, so most people only use them when they do not have another option.
