Regardless of the reason, getting to know your options while you’re visiting Cape Coral can help you plan out your trip and ensure you can always get where you need to go.

Make sure you bring exact change, or you can also make use of their contactless payment through the app.
Driving Your Own Vehicle
If you do bring your own vehicle or rent one, it’s the recommended method of transportation around the area. Though the above services do cover a comprehensive portion of the area, the only true way to avoid the wait times is to operate your own vehicle. This comes especially recommended because, while certain areas are pedestrian-friendly, most of the area is not. Getting from one area to another comes with a lot of distance, and the highway is often the only way to get there.
There’s usually no need to worry about inclement weather unless heavy rain or a hurricane is coming through, as the area is relatively temperate all year and there’s no snow on the roads during winter.
