Binghamton transportation is available throughout the city of Binghamton, which is actually quite large. The city itself is just 11 square miles but Broome County encompasses the Binghamton metropolitan area as well as several other towns and villages. All in all, Broome County is 715 square miles. How can you get around this populous city?
Let’s start with the airports of the city. The Greater Binghamton Airport is the regional method of transport, while the Tri-Cities Airport (for Greater Binghamton) serves other nationwide cities. For transportation to and from cities or neighborhoods, think about a Binghamton bus. Intercity bus service is available from Greyhound, as well as Shortline/Coach USA. Specialty services include B.C. Transit, and Off-Campus College Transport.
Binghamton car rental services are your next method of transportation. Popular rental companies include U-Save, Auto Rental America, Enterprise, Hertz, Reputable Auto Center, Budget Rent-a-Car and Avis. Car rental services are ideal if you have a complex itinerary and if you desire a flexible schedule. If you have an easy plan for your vacation, and your destination spots include mainly three or four buildings, then a taxi service may be more to your liking. If so, look up Checker Cab of NY as well as A-1 Courtesy Cab and Owl Taxi Cab Services.
Another option in Binghamton transit would be a train. There are four railroads in the city: Norfolk Southern Railway, Canadian Pacific Railway, the New York, Susquehanna & Western Railway and the Central New York Railroad. There are also river crossings available around Susquehanna and Chenango.
When planning your itinerary, understand the seven neighborhoods of the city: downtown, north, south, east, west, Ely Park and First Ward. Each division has its own residential area and commercial area. Knowing the sites you want to visit in advance will help you reduce travel time and save on transportation costs.
