Carmel is working hard to ensure easy access to all amenities whether you travel by car, bike or on foot. Our public officials, City administrators and planners have incorporated many concepts of traditional neighborhood developments into the growth of the community.
Walkable communities provide many benefits including better health, cleaner air and a higher quality of life. However, there circumstances in which we must travel by vehicle.
While Carmel does not have public transportation, if you need assistance in getting from place to place, please consider one of the various options below.
**This is just a partial listing, the City of Carmel does not endorse any private transportation services**
