Driving cars has a long history in the USA and it is THE way of getting around not only for fans of the American muscle car. But this doesn’t mean that those without a car are going to be stuck. Public transport ranges from local bus and subway systems to interstate train, coach, and flight connections.
In most US cities, you will usually find at least a local bus system you can use for getting around. Especially big metropolises such as New York and San Francisco offer additional tram or metro lines and can boast a dense public transportation network. In addition, you will also find taxi cabs there. However, due to the sheer size of the United States, getting around the country as opposed to around the city can be tricky. This is especially the case when you are living in a rural area; you will hardly find an alternative to driving a car then.
