Getting to Orlando is quick and easy — particularly when arriving by air. Our primary gateway, Orlando International Airport (MCO), is J.D. Power & Associates’ No. 1 mega airport in the southeastern U.S. for customer satisfaction. It also never stops improving, including recent updates to its ticketing and baggage-handling systems. But no matter how travel, you’ll have no problem getting here, and a wealth of transportation services are available to help you explore to your heart’s content once you’ve arrived in Orlando.
All modes of transportation are open in Orlando, Orange County and throughout the State of Florida, including air travel at MCO and Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB), rental cars, taxis, ride-share services, and public-transportation providers such as SunRail (commuter rail) and Lynx (buses). Some services are operating with modified service schedules. Additionally, public-transportation providers are employing appropriate social distancing and enhanced sanitation measures to help protect you during your travels.
Please note: Depending on the timing of your visit, some experiences may be temporarily modified. Learn more about healthy travel in Orlando, and check with your favourite transportation providers for their current status.
