Omaha is a Midwestern city and is therefore no stranger to urban sprawl, being designed primarily to be navigated by car; thus, a rental car is the most convenient option for getting around. Fairly comprehensive fixed-route bus service is provided by Metro Area Transit; however, travellers should note that many bus routes only operate on weekdays. Adult bus fare starts at $1.25. In the central downtown area, walking is a pleasant option when shopping and dining in the Old Market area; attractions like the riverfront and the Qwest Convention Center and Arena can be reached on foot. However, taxi availability can be erratic, and for sightseeing outside this downtown area, a car is best.
