Getting Around Jackson Hole

The best way to get around Jackson Hole is by car. Rental offices are located in the town of Jackson, and at the Jackson Hole Airport (JAC), nine miles north. Although there are other transportation options available, they're not as reliable. And public transportation is limited, as there are quite a few towns and villages found within the valley. Taxi cabs are also available.
