Taxis and rental cars are both available for visitors to Dearborn.  However, both of these transportation options have certain advantages as well as disadvantages. 

            Taxis are a good way of getting around the immediate city of Dearborn as well as to close surrounding areas such as Detroit.  However, if planning on traveling much further, consider another option (see the Trip Advisor Getting Around page) as the fares will get rather high.  Fares are based on meters, which are government regulated and standard for all companies.  Generally, taxis can be found outside of major public areas such as airports, train stations, bus stations, and large hotels.  If away from these areas, call a taxi company at least an hour ahead of time.  There are many Taxi Companies in Dearborn, as well as Taxi Companies in Detroit.

            A personal vehicle is the most convenient form of transportation available in Dearborn, as it allows the greatest freedom and flexibility in travel.   Public transportation is available, but it does not access many places.   First time visitors to the country should check out this Driving in the United States page before deciding to get behind the wheel of a car.   Many people choose to fly into the Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport and then drive to Dearborn.   There are numerous Car Rental Agencies based around the Detroit airport, as well as in the city.
