Kanawha Valley Regional Transport Authority operates around 24 fixed bus routes seven days a week, though some of these routes do not run on public holidays and Sundays. Schedules vary, but the system runs from about 4.30am to 1am. Visitors can also use the Amtrak Railway to get in and around Charleston. Taxis are available in Charleston but must be booked by phone as they are difficult to find on the street. Uber and Lyft both operate in the city; hiring a car is a good idea for those planning to explore outside of the city centre.
