How to Reach Lexington


  • By air: Blue Grass Airport has flights every hour to Lexington and is near to the Downtown too. Louisville and Cincinnati/Nothern Kentucky are larger airports that are just 1.5 hours away from Lexington.
  • By train: the nearest train service is Amtrak’s Cardinal with stations in Maysville and in Cincinnati Ohio.
  • By car: Usually the preferred routes are the two major interstates that are around the northern and eastern borders of the city. I-64 and I-75, first one runs from east to west connecting Louisville and the latter runs from north to south connecting with Cincinnati.
  • By bus: Ten minutes away from the Downtown is the Greyhound station on New Circle road in the northern part of the city.


  • By bus: Every 35 minutes the Lextran provides bus service from the downtown transit centre to many parts of the city including the airport. The buses do not run after 11:00 p.m. and before 5:00a.m. The fare is just 1$ making it very affordable.
  • On foot or bicycle: The Downtown area is very compact thus moving around on foot or bicycle is the best option.
  • By Taxi: Taxi services are also available for the public. In case you don’t have taxi service apps, book a taxi in advance as it is not available easily in Downtown. There is wheel-and-spokes pattern that the roads of Lexington form. The New Circle road forms a circle around the inner city and arterial roads radiate from downtown.
