Getting Around

It's best to rent a car when visiting as Oklahoma City is a sprawling metropolis. Travellers should plan to stay downtown where hotels and attractions cluster together. They can also take advantage of the Oklahoma Spirit trolley service which runs between many major sites.

Embark provides bus services but, due to Oklahoma City's size, it can be difficult to rely solely on the bus system and taking taxis over such long distances can be expensive. There are also ride-hailing apps such as Uber and Lyft.
